    The weather forecast is looking really great for the Neenah Duathlon this coming Sunday with sunny skies and a low of 54 and a high of 76 and a light southerly wind of 11 mph. I'm ready for this. Bring it on. I came so close to getting an award in last year's race. So I trained all winter with a strength training program using bands that a fitness trainer showed me how to use to strengthen my core. My core is really strong right now and I am much more flexible. I did both the bike and then the run course yesteday and beat all my times from last year even with slowing and stopping at intersections because of traffic. Sunday for the race there will be traffic control at all intersections and I should have even better times then yesterday. I am ready to start this race like a deer and get a quick start. I'm working now on my transition times and giving my body much needed rest this week, so I am nicely recovered from all the training I have been doing this winter and spring. Transition is usually where a race is won or lost. In the past I have spent too much time in transition. If I can get out of transition after the run in less then 40 seconds, I have a really good chance at 1st place Sunday in my 50-54 age group. I may be the oldest this year in my age group, but will no doubt have better times then even many guys half my age. I passed quite a few last year on both bike and run and this year I am much stronger in my core and have a lot more endurance then ever before.

    I'm enjoying my recent move to San Fran Bay area, because it's way more comfy than SoFla's 90+ temps and high humidity all winter.

    Just sayin'. icon_razz.gif

    I was raised in AR near the New Madrid fault. Shaky ground is nothing new to me. icon_wink.gif
