I'm sort of glad that I've only got 2 more big weekends left - though I do enjoy ripping off a 1/2 marathon on Saturdays, I'm getting a bit tired of training and no racing (I love to race a lot more).
This weekend is a half marathon in the AM at a decent pace - goal pace is in the <7:30 min mile pace range (I'll get to test out the Zoot shoes then too). In the evening is a 10k that I'll try to get done in the <7 min mile pace timeframe. In between is a morning at the beach with the kids, some shopping for a very skinny 4 year old and maybe a nap.
Sunday is a good 4 hour TT bike effort with much time in Z3 and about 4,500 ft of climbing - followed by a 30 min brick run and a lot of Ben's Clif Recovery drink.
I figure if I can survive this training then a half ironman is going to be fun to race.
Yet again, here's another sunrise before a run (I used to see this on the way back - but now I get to see it before I leave!).
Base Performance is here:
I got my new products from Chris Lieto's Base Performance Nutrition. He gave me a lot of good tips for usage and I'll be working with him to get some FAQs answered - I'm really excited by some of the testimonials he's already getting and am planning on using the Base Water and Base Amino in all my training from here on out.
