Tour de Terra Cotta

Tomorrow is going to be a big day for this sprint distance athlete. 108km of cycling on the 9km loop course in Terra Cotta. A group of us from the FMCT club will try to have some fun keeping up with the cycling regulars. It should be a neat experience to work as a unit instead of flying solo as per the du and tri efforts we are used to. I checked out some of the registrants and recognize some familiar names. It will be nice to hook up with some former du'ers (John Stewart and Zack Steinman) to see how things are going.

I knew I was racing this a few weeks ago so ramped up the rides a little but have kept to the running program. It is very important that I keep getting quicker on the run so I did not want to just focus on the bike for this race as I still have a few duathlons left this season and then hope to run a few races later to see how I have progressed over the past year.

Well, best go and get some rest for tomorrow. I have yet to ride over 70km this year in any given day so I may end up with some very heavy legs half way through this one. I hope my team is ready to pull!!! HAHA

Best of luck on your weekends!
