Epic Brick

I am SO ready to taper for Buffalo Springs, but I have one more epic brick this weekend. It is so epic that we have to leave town to do it.

Mrs. Greyhound and I are on the way to the Fredericksburg in the Texas Hill Country to celebrate our 17th annivsersay (which actually passed a couple of weeks ago). But thankfully, Mrs. Greyhound is tolerant enough to let me have Saturday morning to complete a massive brick in the best cycling in the state. 55 miles on the bike including some climbs of category 2, category 1 and one HC climb to the "Bat Cave Summit." Then, hopefully, 10 or more miles running.

If I survive, it is taper time. Wish me luck, because this tired old body is going to need it.

Good luck on the brick! I hear there is some really nice riding out that way.

You are well on your way for Buffalo Springs.

BTW....http://www.cafepress.com go to this site and search for triathlon. The shirt I mentioned in my blog will come up in the search.

Greyhound,

Sounds like a great tune up brick before your taper. It's a great opportunity to train in the same way you'll race. Practice pacing, nutrition, hydration, and electrolytes as if you were at Buffalo Springs. It's also a good time to set up your bike, water bottles, clothing, and other equipment like you will on race day.

Oh yes, enjoy your anniversary celebration and try not to spend too much money at those antique shops in Fredicksburg ;-)

Stay tuned...
