Saturday 7/22

Improving running mechanics.  Although I am still unhappy about my hips being so far back in relation to my center of mass

Today I did a local sprint triathlon.  It was a Very hilly, challenging course.  The swim was only 525y in a pool, the bike was just over 10 miles (with over 1100ft of climbing) and the run was the standard 3.1 miles.  The run course was primarily off road and pretty much uphill for the first two miles.
