With my first full Triathlon season down, I head into my second season with a much better idea of what to expect. I may not swim like Phelps or Bike like Lance or Run like Prefontaine, but I train like a wild man. This Saturday March 19th we will see how good my training has prepared me. It is only a Sprint Triathlon, but I should be able to assess my levels and get a good feel for how far I have to go before my first Olympic Distance Triathlon on May 1st.
Although I have been consumed by triathlon, I have had time to look at this years field of the NCAA Tournament. My Michigan Wolverines are back! It's been a while, but I feel like they have a lot to build on. With the NBA in limbo after this season regarding their Collective Bargaining Agreement, I think many of the non graduating players will stay in school one more season. I will also be following BYU and Jimmer Fredette. The guy is a solid player and being in a weaker conference makes him standout that much more. 42 points vs. San Diego State is stout and averaging 28 pts a game is great in any conference. I can only hope my Magic get him. I see Duke winning it all this year. They crushed a tough UNC team. Not sure UCONN has the horses this year, but they finished the season strong and clutch tournament is in their blood. Duke but rooting for UCONN til the end. Who wouldn't want to see the Silky Fredette go out with a Championship? Big Blue is not deep enough to go more than 2 rounds in this years tournament. I did not participate in brackets this year so that I can once again enjoy the passion of this time of year. These kids really leave it all out there every second. Enjoy this week's games, I will.
