Weekly Report

I was able to get all three triathlon disciplines in this past week. I didn’t do any mid-week runs because of the guy’s training weekend where I knew I’d spike my mileage, though skipping the Sunday run shaved about 10 miles off the usual training weekend total.  The swim is still the hardest to work into my schedule and is also my weakest area.  I’m going to make sure I get in the pool at least once a week, even though the training program requires two swims.  As the summer comes around hopefully it will be easier to get to the pool or into the lake.

TC 1 Mile – Tomorrow

If you haven’t heard yet, tomorrow is the TC 1 Mile and the USA Men’s and Women’s 1 Mile Road Championship in downtown Minneapolis. The first wave of runners heads up Nicollet Ave at 6:50pm with the Championship waves scheduled for 7:53 (women’s) and 8:03 (men’s).

This is always a great event and is the 2nd largest road mile in the country. When I last ran it in 2009, David Torrence broke the 4 minute mark and won $10,000.  This year, marathoner Ryan Hall will be competing and will try to break the 4 minute barrier. It should be a fun race to watch! (Has he run a 4:01 or 1500m equivelent? or did he get an invitational entry?) His wife Sara Hall will be competing as well in the women’s race.  She is a favorite to win, while Torrence is hoping to win his 3rd straight championship.

No matter what happens, it should be another exciting night on the Mall!

The 2008 race wasn’t quite as exciting!
