San Antonio

In a week I was be jetting on over to Ireland for European Duathlon Champs. Then from April 20th I was be calling San Antonio TX home. This past weekend I paid a trip down to my new homeland to see Heather and do a marriage prep course. I got in some decent training too as the weather was amazing!

Friday was an early morning run of 45mins before the sun was up, then after breakfast I got on Heather's bike and explored for a bit to look for good places to live. In the afternoon I hit up Golds Gym with Heather to get in a swim before we headed to the first day of our class at 6pm until 9pm. Afterwards we met up with Wes and Erin Anderson for a few drinks. Both are from Iowa and moved to San Antonio not that long ago. Wes is racing Pro this season and Erin is doing her first Ironman this year. A pretty awesome couple and will be great to get to know them !
Saturday morning was a quick run before we headed back to the class, In the afternoon I hit up the trails again to see if my hip was fine to race on Sunday. I decided to be smart and wait until I got my hip aligned to put in a hard effort and besides with 3 weeks left to Euros its best to play it safe.

So Sunday instead of the 10k, I hooked up with Wes Anderson for a nice steady 70+mile tour of the outskirts of San Antonio, He is Wes's blog
In the pm I jumped in the pool 200m from the house for a quick swim, It will be nice to have a 25 yard pool so close to swim at. No excuses after April 20th ! and lots of yards.

Have a great week.
Go Caps !
