2nd TT in Tulsa-May 13, 2010
The first time I competed in this race it was only a 5K but this month they increased it to a 10K. I wasn't worried because I had been putting in lots of good training rides and working with my coach, Rob Green. He even made sure my mom knew exactly what I needed to eat up to race time! I think it helped because I was able to shave time off and come in 1st again! I was 7:59 faster than my closest competitor. I was very happy! I know I still have work to do but I know I am getting stronger and faster! So, I finished the race in 20:53...10:02 on the first 5K and 10:51 the second 5K. I yelled at myself on the second lap because I could tell I was going slower and it made me mad. I kept yelling "Go faster Luke!!!" I think it helped. I averged 17.85 mph. Anyway, I was still happy that I did my best and won the race! Now, back to OKC for my next TT on Saturday!
