Thank you! I can report that even in the afternoon, traffic was light and fairly ok, and it was a gorgeous ride. Also: I only remembered your warnings until I was face-to-face with those climbs. Whew!

Hi all — I’ll be camping near Luray this weekend, and I’m looking for a place to do an 1.5 hr ride (nothing too crazy, it’s my recovery week).
Is the Luray sprint tri course a good ride, from Lake Arrowhead? Wondering how busy the roads are. Thank you! (Map/cue sheet: https://luraytriathlon.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/2015-luray-sprint-triathl…[Read more]

Hi all — after doing PeasantMan this weekend, my IT band is screaming at me, and I’m realizing that all of my prior PT and running form work hasn’t gotten me out of the heel-striking woods just yet. Is there a running form coach or 1:1 clinic where I can get more individualized help with my running form?
I’ve found many of the running clinics…[Read more]

Thanks, Coach AJ! A question for Peasantman weekend: how hard should we be training on Saturday, and how hard should we race on Sunday?
Our TP plan has a heavy 2hr ride on Saturday, May 4 + a 30 min brick. If we do the group ride on Saturday, should we do the TP workout? Should we “race” at a lower intensity for Sunday’s race so that we don’t…[Read more]

I’m back with another question on this topic. I’m totally wiped today from the run test yesterday — is anyone else fatigued, or is this a sign I royally messed something up during my recovery/test week?
I can’t imagine doing a swim test today, so I’m going to test on Wednesday instead, and either skip today’s swim or do Wednesday’s planned…[Read more]

I had a slightly similar question (or rather, I’m looking for an excuse as to why I may have not performed as strongly on my bike test on Tuesday!) I stupidly didn’t notice that there was a bike test on Tuesday, and did a hefty squat/lunges set on Monday for strength conditioning. My legs definitely weren’t as fresh as other times I’ve tested (for…[Read more]

Hi all — I’m in the midst of working with the Suunto support team on issues with my Ambit 2s and movescount (Suunto’s platform). My swim data records properly on my watch and on movescount, but then uploads wonky to TP with yardage and times significantly off. Training Peaks support looked into it, and told me it’s the data on…[Read more]

Harvard Hill — Harvard Street NW going down to the Zoo in Mt. Pleasant — is a good one. Circling the outside of Meridian Hill/Malcom X on the sidewalks also works if it’s not too busy out. Would love to hear other suggestions!
Hi! Wondering if I should do the full week 9 mid-week workout tonight (Tues night) before Thursday night’s threshold test — or is that cutting it too close re: keeping my legs fresh and happy? Thank you!!
According to posts by DC Council member Brianne Nadeau and Mayor Bowser’s office, seems that Marie Reed will open this coming Monday. Hooray! https://twitter.com/BrianneKNadeau/status/905588473616359424
