Three-peat at Gloucester & Base Training

August 8, 2011


Coming off of a pair of successful Pan-American Cups, which I tapered for, it was time for me to go “back to base”. I’ve spent the past four weeks doing lower intensity aerobic training mixed in with a few strength/core sessions per week. For the most part, it has been a boring training block, absent […]

Into the Summer

June 22, 2011


I apologize for not updating my blog for a while. I can’t say that I’ve been wicked busy, slightly lazy maybe be more accurate. Alas, here is a brief summary of all my significant triathlon-related events of the past couple months in chronological order: New Orleans 70.3 Windermere Roadies Group Rides Leaving FL and heading […]

Update from Somewhere over South America

March 17, 2011


I’m writing this en route to my second race of the year: the ITU Santiago, Chile Pan-American Cup.

However, this past Friday my schedule just happened to work out to create the “perfect storm” so to speak and I somehow wound up […]

Let the Speed Work Begin!

February 25, 2011


Last week marked the start of my speed phase, but yesterday was the first day that I really got into some “fast” workouts. My day started at the NTC for a 4k swim with 3x10x25 all out Tabata sprints. I had a quick lunch and then it was onto the bike for some crit course […]

Crit Course Training

February 18, 2011


Monday marked the start of my next four week training block. I’m finally adding in speed work! The Team Psycho Time Trial was a complete shock to my system after having not done any sort of interval above threshold. While exploring the riding around my duplex I’ve found an awesome area to do some race […]

Commencing Heat Acclimation Phase

February 16, 2011


As I start my next four week training block I’m going to be adding in a new element to my training. If you track my results from 2010, or from any previous year for that matter, one pattern that emerges is that I have a very hard time racing in hot and humid conditions. Last […]
