I've decided to behave as thought I might do a triathlon in September.

I have no restriction on swimming. I have permission to bike 10 miles easy, as long as it doesn't hurt.

So I laid out my transition area and did a 20-minute swim followed by a 10-mile bike. All slow and easy, total time an hour and 6 minutes.

I feel encouraged. Maybe a little too much so.... doing some math on my fingers, if I could increase my bike ride by 5 miles per week, it would take 8 weeks to get to 50 miles and then I'd still have 3 weeks to taper. Hmmm.


We shall see. I'm not going to count on it. You better not either. But we shall see.

It's great that you can still work towards this goal, even if things haven't been going smoothly for you.

Liked the deer photo, by the way.
