So it’s been about a month now that I’ve been back at the committed triathlon training. So far everything has been going pretty well, there have been a few bumps in the road, but that always seems to happen! I feel like I have made training a habit again, missing my workouts if I don’t […]Read More One Month In!
We’re at the 6 months out mark from IMAZ so it was time to jump back into the training with both feet. My friends, Len and Bill, and I had been getting in some good, base building rides over the past few months. Now it is time to really start the committed training, and I […]Read More Doin’ Good Getting Back to Training
Yep, took me forever to write about this super fun experience, don’t know why. This is a race I had wanted to do for a long time, when a spot opened up on one of Amy’s co-worker’s team I jumped at the chance. I was a little skeptical about not knowing the people I would […]Read More Long Overdue Ragnar del Sol Post
This coming weekend is a race I’ve been wanting to do for a while, the Ragnar Del Sol Relay! It is a relay race from Wickenburg to Tempe that takes a circuitous path to make it 200 miles. You do it with 11 other people divided up into 2 vans of 6, alternating runners until […]Read More Stoked for the coming weekend!
I’ll start this blog post out like many other posts I’ve seen: It’s been a little too long since I last posted, but I’m trying to make an effort to do better! On Sunday it was time to go for a ride away from our normal stomping ground of Pecos Rd, so we headed up […]Read More A Beautiful February Ride
2011 is gone and now it’s time to enjoy 2012! It was a relatively good year for us, we had a great wedding with close friends and family, got in a nice trip to Vegas, and I signed up for IMAZ 2012! We’re going to start 2012 off with a quick trip to San Antonio […]Read More In with the new!
After a great trip to Vegas, things are settling back down for us! Everything went very smoothly for our wedding and honeymoon trip but it’s nice things are finally getting back to normal. We don’t have an event to plan or worry about contacting vendors, such a relief! This past weekend was Ironman Arizona, always […]Read More IMAZ and the past week
Pretty nice day to ride, my friend Len and I did the ride to Maricopa today, it’s a flat forty mile round trip to a town a little south of the house. Felt much better on the bike today than the last ride, really enjoyed just cruising down the road and being on the bike. […]Read More Nice Day on the Bike
Pretty much slacked off in the training department this weekend. On the upside, Amy and I had a pretty relaxing weekend together! On Saturday night we were at a house warming party for one of Amy’s friends. Amy’s friend and her husband are from Alaska and there were some other Alaskans there, they were discussing […]Read More The weekend and Must Go Running!
So far so good this week with the training. Took Monday and Tuesday off as planned and got in a good ride Wednesday morning, wasn’t even that hot for the first 1/2 of the ride! We added a second hill loop to what we’ve been riding lately. here’s the ride elevation graph: The hills aren’t […]Read More Getting back to the Habit
