Aquathon week

I haven't done any biking yet this week, but planning on it tonight. I have done my running and swimming though:

Monday pm: run
6.0 miles/53:29/8:55 average pace
Iron Horse Trail solo

Tuesday: a much needed REST day

Wednesday am: run
8.0 miles/1:11:35/8:57 average pace
Iron Horse Trail solo

Wednesday pm: swim
2450 y/57:22

Thursday am: swim
1500 y/38:49
Gym pool solo

Tonight I'm going to do a brick ride to practice dismounting my bike in a hurry and running a short distance in my shoes. This will be my first tri with this bike. I’m also going to put in and try the new Easy Laces I got.

The triathlon is this Saturday at 5:00 pm. This is my first tri of the season and only my third tri ever. It's the Showdown at Sundown and it takes place at China Camp State Park near San Rafael. The weather looks perfect so far- highs in the 70's and sunny. Not too hot, not too cold. My mom is flying in tomorrow night so she's going to come watch (and take pictures of course!). It will be the first time she’s seen a triathlon. Should be fun!

Here’s a pic of China Camp State Park:

I will post pictures and a report as soon as I can. I don't have any real goals this time besides to swim, bike, and run as fast as I can. :) The course doesn't seem too tough, but you never know. I know it will be fun and a good experience.
