So with the new relocation comes new training territory! So here is my lastest, today, run of 8 miles around the area! HFS! there is a huge change in elevation here from H-twn and although this was my second run of the week I did feel a little dizzyness as I first started but it went away after the 3rd mile.I will take some pics of my new training area. I will not be riding till mid-nov. as I left Dino back with Liz after Canyon Lake Tri to take it with me on the final road trip from H-twn to Vegas as I have to go pick up my Suv and will stopping off in New Mexico to hang out with S. Baboo next month after he does Silverman Tri. Anyway, things are setteling in and I will be updating you from the town that never sleeps.. rockon`

Once there we got the instructions and took off. In my little pack of runners was Geoff, Liz, and Lauren. Well it didn't take long before Geoff decided to Blast off and he was gone, dropping us like a wet dirty rag. Liz stayed with us on and off for a while but she was working through some of the other runners and checking on them. Lauren and I were running and chatting and after making one of the turn around just after 2 miles out we had been running around 9:30/mi pace, which was great! HR was doing good (cooler weather helps JT out big time!) Then we rolled pasted the 4.5 mile mark and the run course changed to a few short but steep hills and so I would attack them hard and then Lauren would fly down the backside of those hills and pass me every time. I just couldn't seem to run that fast down hill. Finally, around 5 miles Lauren asks for the time and distance we're at says,.. WE are finishing this 10k under 60 mins! I say Shit as I recheck the distance and time. At 5 miles we are 50 minsish. So that's means we have to bust a 10min/mile back which wouldn't be that hard but we had already picked it up over those hills and were running like 9's. Well I didn't have too long to think about it because Lauren freakn' took off from the water stop we were just at like crazy yelling Move it!! Let's GO!!

Then Tuesday it was an easy run but didn't feel so easy as I streeetched it out some with a 7.25 miles. It was a little hot so this made it a little hard but got it done.
Wednesday was a nice little ride with Liz for about 30 miles and if you jump over and read her blog, don't even fall into that BS that she had to slow down and wait for me on several occasions, come on`..JT.. here! I just didn't want to lead.
Then Thursday was another hard ass run cause it was like 96* and just plain HOT! I ended up running about 6 miles but in those 6 I run some Hills, Fatleks, Intervals and just slow stuff with walking.
Then Friday Liz and I went out to twin lakes for some OWS and Geoff was supposed to met us there but got in late from out of town so we ended up getting 930 meters and I was able to use my wetsuit, although, it was freakn` hot, it was not as bad as it was the first time I tried it. So my 930 m swim was in 23 mins which is not bad but still a little slow.
Then Saturday it was so fukn Humid it was pathetic! but that didn't stop us from getting in 6.5 miles in before the running group. It was nice to be done with it as then I got coffee, went to my assigned water station, crankd` up da tunes and waited for the runners. And now for the epic day, Sunday. Today, was a nice little 56 mile bike ride out in Montgomery, which, I had planned on only doing 45ish but at my turn around point, Liz called me to ask where I was, Yes, I was ahead of her. So I said I would wait up and the ride a little more to the next little town where we were gonna meet up with the fast dudes, Geoff and Ryan. So when we got to the town those Bozo's had left and now I was at 30 miles so instead of doing out and back we just rode the loop. Once back at the car it was a quick change for a short brick to get the legs working and just at a mile we were done. One thing I noticed was that coming off the bike to run has not really bothered me and the legs seem to start working pretty fast and respond well. Other thing about today's ride was that I was pretty much all Zone 1 and Zone 2 which is totally awesome and if you are a quick thinker, Bigun, then based on that you will have known that I was bullshitting about waiting up for Liz as it was totally the other way around. OK, OK, I will say it, she is faster than me, period. But she cannot burn more Calories than me at the same distances and that drives her bonkers!
