big days (sort of)

with Timberman not far off, I have been trying to lay down some big days of training when the body feels up for it. Yesterday I did about 4:30 in the heat and felt strong all day. Today I was a bit knackered so I did a nice swim and bike and called it a day. I hope to do a quality run in the AM then a "mini tri" in the evening. IMLP is already on my mind and I want to make sure I keep some form throughout the fall/winter. Other news, I got rejected on the Greely High nordic job, I think there was some serious politics going on, but so goes life! At least I can ski race now this year! This weekend is Bethel, a top 5 would be nice there.

signed up

so I signed up for IMLP 2006. I have been meaning to get into a Mdot race for a few years so this is it. I was contemplating IMMoo but thought IMLP might be easier on the family. Looks like Spring 2006 will mean many cold rides on the bike and long runs!

long run

so I have been neglecting the long run for a while now. I have been in this routine of 30-40min runs and not much more (doing these 5 days a week). so today, I decided 90mins was needed. So I grabbed the iPod and headed out with one gel. the weather was perfect and I felt good the whole time, I even ran the last 15mins of so at goal HIM effort and finished strong. this run was confirmation that my fitness was not to bad. the summer has been tough with the move and lots of coaching demands. i hope to salvage the last few months and go into the fall with some good fitness. i need now to decide on IMLP or IMMoo for 2006. I will know by tonight! train smart and rest well. KP
