Good weekend

of training. Put in two solid days and it was pretty hot and windy too. Saturday we did the Olympic course at GCT Headlands Beach. We arrived a little early and got in the water with the intent to go for 35-40 minutes. There were 2 to 3 footers rollin' in from the Northwest, so going east was pretty nice but at the turn heading back it was like a washing machine for about 20 minutes but it was good sighting practice over the waves. The swim felt good then we went into the transition area and geared up for the bike. We had a group of about 10 riding the Oly course and everyone rode pretty strong. After the bike Tony, Chris and I transitioned pretty quick and headed off on the 10k run. We ran the first 5k at a good tempo pace and at the halfway Tony and I picked up the pace to near race pace and finished the 2nd. 5k in just under 21 minutes. After the run we headed back to the water to cool the legs down a bit before heading home. Overall it was a solid training day and we felt pretty strong.

Today was a long bike followed by a run, not a long run but one just to get the feeling back in the legs after riding a long tempo. I did a 60 mile loop with a long and a few short steep climbs.
It was a good ride and I felt strong on the flats and climbed at an up-tempo pace and finished the windy bike in 2:45 and change for 60 miles. I took along 2 packs of Enduralytes and 2 packs of Clif Blocs and used all of them. I stopped once for extra water at a Fire Department near Jefferson so I stayed pretty hydrated and had good energy at the end of the ride. I did a quick transition and decided that I would run a 5k and work on toe off's and striding a little rather than to see how fast I could run off the bike. I felt very good on the run and all I could think of was I would like to feel this good on the 70.3 race coming up. I ended up finishing the 5k in about 21:30 so overall for me it was a good day and a decent weekend.

Easy week coming up with some short fast stuff then it's off to Doug's for the weekend to race the Dam Tri Olympic race near Meadville P.A.

Congratulations to all that raced Maumee Bay and other races this weekend and Happy Fathers Day to all you guys that are Dad's out there.

Found your blog thru bikeblogs.com

Looked at your profile and saw that you and your family are seriously into this sport.

I'm not here to try to use your site as a selling arena please feel free to delete this comment, however, I wonder if you and your family would be interested in a new product called Alkalete?

Brian Clay, most recent Olympic Decathlon winner was one of our test subjects and loved the results so much he became a distributor. As he is currently competing and training for the next Olympics and has been tested numerous times while using it, we know that there are no banned substances in the product. He uses both the Alkalete capsules and the "FUN" beverage which is a wonderful electrolyte balancing drink. Other athletes like Carl Lewis are also using it.

It's new - out just since mid-May and we are hearing some amazing results. Because it reduces acid in the body athletes can work out harder, run longer, bike further and recover faster.

Please check my website - http://evabaez.goyoli.com

Click on Products in the upper right hand corner - click on Alkalete then on the new site it opens up listen to the audio clip at the bottom of that home page.

After that click on Athlete (again on the top right of that site) and listen to the audio clip at the bottom of that page. The website has a lot of info that you may find interesting.

I am looking not only for product users but also people who might wish to become distributors.

If you have any questions my contact info is on the first site.

Thanks. Eva Baez
