Life as a triathlete, Vehicross's and off-roading

Running with the big dogs

Living and training on the west side of Tucson I often run into some of triathlons “top dogs”. Most recently it has been at the track. During  my Tuesday workout Miek Twelsiek was going through his paces. That was followed by the college track team doing some drill work (Man, those guys have incredible leg speed…and they are “just” Jr. College athletes!). On Friday I was “joined” by Ironman World Champion Miranda Cafrae. It just so happens we were both running 800’s. Surprisingly our pace was dead even…of course I was doing Vo2 pace and she appeared to be well under that level, I only had 3 to do and she was doing 8+ and her rest interval was half of mine.
