We did my backyard tri this past Saturday, it was a lot of fun! As I described, it was a quarter-mile swim worth of laps in my pool, and then bike and run through my 'hood.

Several people bailed, so it was only 3 of us adults that did it, but we had about 10 kids do a short version. The bike course had a big hill which we had to hit twice, so that made it challenging as well as for the run afterwards.

It gave me a good idea on what I should focus on over the next few weeks before my 'real' tri.

Other than that, the HM training is going well.

We're going to swim laps in my pool (15 full laps = .25 mile) and then run and bike through my neighborhood. Gonna order medals for everyone, and since we're all different ages everyone will get a 1st place AG (Age Group) medal. lol. Pool party/BBQ for all the families to follow.

I also signed up for a "real" sprint tri in the middle of august. So my backyard one will be a good primer for it.
