If you have been doing triathlons for a while, you will notice that triathletes come and go in the triathlon scene. Some people are active and then fade into the woodwork, some move to other cities and some specialize in certain distances that are not what you are concentrating on at the time....

Getting Uncranked...

fingerOvercoming Crankiness...

Muncie 70.3 left me cranky for the better part of a week. My optimism levels are just now returning to normal. I would always tell an athlete to keep a broad perspective and never get too down over a single performance but this did little to stop me from feeling mad, sad and robustly pouty.

Though last week was mostly easy a few things in training have cheered me up. First, I set 3 swim PRs at practice at Hopkins Masters. Monday I got in, warmed up for 200, put on my paddles and pullbouy and swam my fastest 1000 ever. Previous 1000 PR was probably set en route to 1500 (I've done a couple of these in practice, also...

G-Man Predictions...

ENDURANCEGraniteman-Big Lake - According to Yahoo Weather, that unassailable source of deadly accurate forecasting, conditions at Big Lake on Saturday should be totally groovy. Morning lows in the mid-50s, climbing to 70ish by lunchtime. Best of all, the sun should be visible, the winds negligible and the chance of rain, zilch.

Yeah. Let's see how all that works out. And if the sun actually shines, maybe some of us won't need to take our Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors. We can only hope.

Graniteman-Big Lake will celebrate its 3rd anniversary as the final, and arguably coolest, race in the G-Man Tri Series. A glance at the current reg. list tells us that a record crowd, perhaps 500 participants, should be on hand.

Let's do some predictions....

Waseca 1/3 & Sprint V - Nicole Heininger tightened her frontrunner's hold on the 2013 Rookie of the Year award on Sunday by winning the Waseca 1/3 in record time. She covered the 1-mile swim, 34-mile bike, 8.8-mile run in 3:02:25, which proved to be 2:04 faster than Diane Hankee's year-old CR. It was Nicole's first career W to go with awesome podium efforts at Heart of the Lakes and Lake Waconia.

Joining Heininger in the women's Top 3 were perennial stars, Julie Hull (3:08:13), and Gillian Auslander (3:11:30).
