Paddle (Stellar SR) 1:23:12 [3] 5.7 mi (14:36 / mi)
ahr:124 max:137

5 min warm up
3 min race pace, 2 min recovery, repeat.
Practiced my remount afterward, and I figured it out this time. The videos helped, but I didn't realize until I was out there that my problem was that I was rushing it and not getting my hips up onto the ski before trying to flip around to put my butt in the seat. I also saw the local tri club hanging out afterward and stopped to chat with them. There's definitely some interest in AR by multiple parties there. Next time, I'll get in gear and get out of work early enough to hang out with them for a while.

Run 1:05:08 [3] 6.1 mi (10:41 / mi) +115ft 10:29 / mi
ahr:152 max:170

Ran to the 11 mile road overpass and did 8x1 minute climbs and then did 5x1 minute intervals on the way back (1 minute recovery) On intervals both up the hill and flats, I was able to get the pace down around 8's and my cadence and ground contact time got into the green. Glad I waited until 8:30 to do this as it was starting to cool off nicely.

Mountain Bike 2:18:53 [3] 16.5 mi (7.1 mph) +246ft
ahr:121 max:141

Midland City forest with pack. Love riding in the evening because the temps get more comfortable as the ride goes on. Trails were in good condition - much of the sand held down by recent rain. At the 2 hour mark, hamstrings started to hurt, so I called it. Now is the time to listen to the body. New plan after much discussion with lots of people - cut volume, increase rest, cut crossfit. Most of all is listening to my body though. Oh, and more sleep and more stretching.

I almost ran over a snake. It was acting weird and just slithering in place on the trail. It was a pretty small snake, but it had a large mid-section. I think it was digesting a mouse or something.
