On Sunday's cycling ride I had a tube EXPLODE on me. It scared everyone in the cycling line. This puppy went off loader that a shotgun. It tore an 8in rupture in the tube. God, I hope that does not happen in the race. Luckily no one was hurt. I want to put some miles on the new tube this weekend to make sure it will not happen again. I have bad luck with tubes.
Saturday was a 3K swim. The first 1K I had a hard time finding my pace and breathing. The second and third K was really easy and enjoyable. I have to remember to start off fast to break from some of the crowd and then slow down and focus on stroke and breathing. If I can find someone to draft off of I will in a heartbeat.
Sunday was a long brink (46mi bike + 13.1 mile run). It was as hot as hot as Hades (probably in the low 90 with next to no shade). It should be as hot during the race. Luckily I live only about 20 miles from the race site so I am more use to the weather than most running it. My biggest concern is the heat. The mileage I know I can do.

I have not trained in 3 days. My lunch time has been taken up with self defense training. It’s a free class and has proven to be “interesting.” I am learning how to stop someone from assaulting me and using common items to defend myself. Good stuff to know (especially if you are women). I recommend all women take a self defense class.
