Ironman VS Poop: Poop Wins.

The One and Only Caddyshack.

Believe it or not, there are some things a triathlete will not swim through. I have swam downstream of the City of Richmond’s James River (its been crapped in since the John Smith got here). I have swam in the runoff from a nuclear power plant cooling system. But the one thing I cant swim past is the crystal clear sight of poop lying at the bottom of a lap pool. Yep, some kiddo dropped the S-Bomb in the pool while I was happily drilling way with my mouth open. Of course, I was the last person out to realize this and thus the last one out of the pool. I swear, I can taste it…

Besides today’s setback, training has been going great. Weight is down to 153. Run speed keeps increasing ever so slightly. Riding wattage is going way up fast. Swimming is also headed in the right direction. Its pretty easy for me to get over eager early in the season and blow up by June, so I’m trying to stick to the training plan and not add anything extra in. If I keep at it, I may be able to move up from the middle this year.
