What has been the most challenging part of your training so far: running in the heat and uploading sh!t to workoutlog

What has been the most enjoyable part of your training: smashing all of my friends on the bike and blowing money on overpriced gadgets (like being peer pressured by coach’s coworkers to buy a Shiv)

Favorite workout: anything on the bike, especially power test

Least favorite workout:  half mile repeats

If you could tell other athletes one thing you have learned so far in your training what would it be? Having big tree trunk thighs may rule the bike but you have to lift that much more mass when you run and that sucks

Any embarrassing moments or stories?  I am saving this answer to see if I poop myself during Louisville in front of all my friends and family
