Here's a Wild Idea

Now that I am back into the full training mix and the lingering reminders of my shoulder injury are fading, it's time to get racing.  Continuing the trend of signing up for races close to the race event last week my buddy and I signed up for the Great South Bay sprint triathlon.  I'm excited and a bit nervous for my first race (not including a 10-mile winter run) since Arizona; temperatures in the northeast have remained mild and last week was downright cold.  Saturday I'm planning my first OWS of the season and based on the reports of others who have swam recently I am bracing myself for the cold.   

I'm looking towards Sunday's race as if it is just another training day and in fact after the event my Timberman crew and I will be heading out for our weekly long ride.  The 10-mile bike of the sprint is not enough to replace the weekly long ride that is part of our Timberman training plan.  As if that's not enough activity for one day we aren't stopping there: at night we will head to the Belmont Racetrack for the Belmont Stakes 5K for Prostate Cancer.  

The day should be one to remember but more than anything I am just glad to be back to my old self again.  I feel so much more complete now that I am back in training and I'm glad to have a couple of great training partners heading into the tri season.  Let's get it on.
