"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

Never, Never, Never Quit.

Almost done

Last week was a good week, getting about 13 hours in, including my last long(4000 yard) swim and last longish ride(70 miles). All that is left is a long run, shooting for 16 miles, this week.

Wednesday-Sunday was a good final push. 4000 yards swimming Wednesday, 9 mile run Thursday, 2000 yard swim and 41 mile bike on Friday, 6 mile run Saturday and 70 mile yesterday. The ride was a little adventurous in that about 4 miles into my ride I had a car come up right next to me and the passenger reached out and pushed me. Took me a second to realize exactly what they did and luckily it wasn't hard enough to really affect me. Though I was a little leery the rest of the ride.

The upcoming week looks like this:

Mon - 2000 yard swim
Tues- 30 mile bike
Weds - 16 mile run
Thurs - 3000 yard swim
Fri - Off
Sat - 50 mile bike followed by 2-3 mile run
Sun - 7 mile run
