Sunday dawned..which was important because The Storm had moved through Saturday night. A couple of tornado's reported but no damage to our neighborhood. Some weren't so lucky. Incredible how just a few miles can make all the difference in a major storm.
In fact, Sunday evening I took the TT bike out to Long Lake, which sustained most of the storm damage. First, Gear West is still standing. There is a substantial amount of tree damage and debris laying around the city. Second, I set a new PR on this particular course averaging 22.4 MPH over 13.56 miles per the Garmin 405. You can see the results here.
I'm pretty thrilled about that as I did forty miles on the bike the day before and also had a 5-mile run the morning of. A very nice, solid week of training.
I am now in taper mode for the Detroit Lakes triathlon on Saturday (8/15). This will be my first time at this event. I should have a preview up later this week.
