Heading Down to Ecuador for ITU Round #2

Posted on February 4, 2010


It’s been a busy past four weeks since Chile. I got three solid training weeks in and have finally started adding speed work back into my training regime. It really feels great to start doing some faster training again – I’m reminded of why I love being a short-course triathlete: track workouts, dive sprints in the pool, and duking it out with Tucson’s pro cyclists in the Tuesday group ride. What painful fun! I should be much, much sharper for Ecuador this Saturday than I was in Chile four weeks ago. Based on how the TT went this past weekend, I’m right on form and should be a podium threat on Saturday. I’ll be going into the race with the #3 starting position. I would have to say the race favorite is Renaldo Colucci after his 3:52 70.3 Pucon win, but I’m not counting anybody out! Will post results to my Twitter as soon as I can…

Nice riding scenery: some mountains in the background

Didn't I come to Tucson to get away from the snow?
