If you came here looking for a race recap, sorry to disappoint but my triathlon on Saturday was canceled. After arriving in Huntington Beach at the crack of dawn, I was informed by the race directors that due to 6 foot waves and 25 mph winds there would be no swim/bike/run. So sad. While I was disappointed, I was also relieved… I didn’t feel like drowning! Because that’s exactly what would have happened in 6 foot waves!
My number one fans (mom and cousin) came all the way up from San Diego to volunteer at the race! Instead we went to Starbucks since that was the only place open at 6 a.m. Afterwards we went for a nice walk on the windy beach.
After my family and I parted ways, I decided not to let the day go to triathlon waste and did a brick workout on the way home from Huntington Beach. It was a difficult 20 mile ride with tough head winds followed by a 2 mile run.
I recently learned from my fellow California Triathlon team mate that you only need to run 10% of what you bike during brick workouts. Mind = blown!
Later Saturday evening I went to a Dodger’s game with California Triathlon. It was a blast!
