This is a great 10K race in Corinth, MS.  Beautiful course, well-supported, lots of local enthusiasm.  I won my age group last year in 50:46.  This year, I won my age group in 48:01.  That's a PR for me for 10K!  I am so happy about it!  The other great aspect of the race is prize money three deep in the age groups above 25 years old. So, finished with a PR, age group win, and in the money...who could ask for a better race day?

Annual Cycle for Safety bike ride today.  I was the 34 mile route 16 mph pacer but had two flats - one at the turnaround and one about 6 miles or so later, so had to drop out.  There's something wrong with the rim on the front tire causing the flat.  Ran 4 miles when I got back home.  Legs a bit sore from yesterday's race.

6:10 am - 5 miles - IT band feels a bit sore and noticed some sciatic pain when I got off the bike at the turnaound point on Sunday, probably due to the hard effort on Saturday. I'm dividing this run in two - a.m. and p.m. Trying not to overdo it.

7 pm - 3 miles, moderate pace - didn't feel the soreness like this morning.

Tire rim for tri bike is fixed.  May ride tomorrow.

2000 yd swim at 8:10 a.m.  5 - 6 mile mtn bike with Carbon at Shelby Farms at 11:30 a.m.  It was very muddy and I wiped out up in the field trying to get out of the track - tires (and me) caked with mud and couldn't get any traction - just mud on mud.  Riding down the gravel road cured that problem, though, at least for the tires.  Carbon loved it, but the grass is very high and there are lots of ticks out there.

Looks like I'm in for the St. George Marathon on Oct. 4.  That will be my target BQ.  Let the training begin!

Rode to work today - 12 miles total.  Felt very tired today as well as yesterday and Sunday.  Going to bed early tonight to see if that helps.  Two triathlons this weekend, back-to-back, amateur challenge.

Rode the triathlon bike after wok, intending to do about 17 miles or so then run.  Had a flat at 17.84 miles, about .7 miles from home, so had to walk the bike home in cycling shoes with cleats on the bottom.  Put the bike away and got out the door to run 6.3 mile loop, added the .7 I walked to the run distance since it WAS on foot!  ; )  Took it easy on the run since the triathlons are this weekend.

19th female, 2nd in age group (there were only two, but hey, I'll take it).  The swim is always a toss-up for me.  I can have a decent day and a not so decent day.  Today was the latter. It took m 21:10 minutes to get out of the water.  In open water swims in lakes in this area, with so much algae and other stuff in the water, I sometimes start wheezing as soon as I get in.  Today was one of those, so ended up doing the breast stroke most of the way which is very inefficient.  I was glad to get out of the water!

The mountain bike course was challenging but not technical.  The run was not too hard, but I wore the wrong shoes, thinking more of it would be on pavement.  I learn something from every race.

Supposed to do the olympic distance tomorrow, but not sure yet if I will - if it were only the bike and run, yes, but with the poor day on the swim today,  I'll have to see how I feel in the morning.

Decided not to race today - difficult decision - didn't decide until I got there and even set up my transition area.  I feel that if it were only the bike and run events, I could have done the race, but did not feel strong enough to swim almost 1 mile first and there was a strong headwind after the turnarouind for the swim course.  Kind of disappointed.   I did get to take lots of pictures of the rest of the team during the race, and that was fun.

Took Jacob to a kid's race in the morning.  He ran 1/4 mile with the under-7 age group.  It was a little tough for him, and his stomach started to hurt, but he kept going and finished in the middle of the pack.  There were lots of kids activities, and he had fun, which is the important part.

It turned out to be a hot day - worked in the yard most of the morning after getting home from Jacob's race.

3 pm run - got 1/2 way through the 7.27 mile loop when a fast-moving, thunderstorm with cloud to ground lightning came through.  It wasn't supposed to rain today, so I didn't check the weather map before leaving, and it was only somewhat cloudy when I left.  So, I ducked into Walmart and waited it out there.  It lasted a good 20 to 30 minutes, and I was finally able to resume the run.  The storm really didn't cool the temperature down much, just made it steamier.

8 pm - 7 miles.  It was a hot day - worked in the yard most of the day, and waited until it cooled down a little to run.  It was still very humid...summer in Memphis!

8 am bike ride with triathlon team.  Got dropped after the water stop at a little more than the halfway point.  Didn't really know the route (no maps or cue sheets were handed out) and was way out in the country. Finally caught up with a guy who had also gotten dropped, and we weren't sure what turns the group took at several intersections, so we guessed, and were able to get back on track on a route back to where we started, but it probably wasn't the same route the group took since we didn't see any of them again until we got back, and a few of them were still at the start, getting ready to leave.  I felt good because the two of us were resourceful enough to find our way back and still get in a decent ride; felt a little embarrassed because I'm not that fast yet and haven't had the time to build up cycling speed; only a little annoyed that the group left us but hey, we're all adults and responsible for ourselves.

7 pm - got surprised again halfway through the run with a downpour and lightning in the distance, so I turned around at 3.7 miles to avoid the storm's path and ended up running 8 miles instead of 7 trying to avoid the storm.  I ran in the heavy downpour but managed to avoid the areas with frequent and close lightning.

6 pm - rode the triathlon bike 20 miles on my own - didn't want to get dropped again. Then ran 6.2 shortly thereafter.  Didn't do the rapid transition from bike to run, but ran as soon as I put the bike in the house, changed shoes, and got a sports drink.

Yearly physical today, mid-morning, and the doctor was surprised to find my heart rate on the EKG is 45, which is classified as bradycardia.  Is that too low?  He is going to do some thyroid tests to make sure thre is not some underlying problem.  He asked if I ever feel lightheaded because my heart rate is so low.  (I don't).

7:30 pm - moderate pace - 7.27 mile loop, then another loop around my neighborhood at an easy pace except a sprint in the last .1 mile when someone's Jack Russell terrier chased me for a block and a half or so.  I thought I could just outrun him and he would give up after a while, but he was persistent and finally stopped when I yelled over my shoulder at him.
