Austin Day One Report

My Ride

With my late arrival from Minneapolis on Thursday night, I knew my early AM plans were already in jeopardy. Surprisingly though, I was up by 4:30 and managed to get some work done before heading off to the pool. I ended up choosing Big Stacy as the pool, and it was awesome. The pool is 100 feet long, but there was an open lane and it was a gorgeous day. Given the length I couldn’t really do the math, so I just swam steady. I put in about 3000 yds in just over 45 minutes.


A quick change at the car saw me head out to Lady Bird Lake, running on the “east” side. I did a total of 6.25 miles. It was a bit urban at the start, but then I got to the lake with a great path and so much more. Joy!


It was time for a work break at Starbucks, and a coffee+scone later I was off to Jack and Adams Bike Shop. These guys hooked me up big time, putting me on a sweet Felt. I was amazed at how busy the shop was…a great experience without being overwhelming. I headed out on the “Dam Loop” and put in 65 hilly and windy miles over some great terrain.


Daily Totals: 5 hours, 3k swim, 6.25 run, 65 bike.
