So its been a pretty busy, stressful and draining couple of weeks. With training in full bore, I raced the Hagg Lake Sprint with tired legs on July 12th and raced well. I finished 2nd overall with a 1:05.02 Last week I had an emotional set back and a very busy week, and with the help of Scott, cut my training back to 10.5 hours. I raced again this last weekend at the Deschutes Dash Olympic and finished 4th overall with a 2:02.30. This event has the potential to be decent, but they have alot of work to do. I can tell they were trying but they were in over their heads and it was poorly run which is too bad because its such a great venue.
So anyway, I am back to 20 hours training this week, and then race again on August 3rd and again on the 17th.
