“I don’t believe in pessimism. If something doesn’t come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it’s going to rain, it will.” -Clint Eastwood
Flexibility was the key this week. And surely, it took a good helping to deal with the rain. Whoa! But, as everyone says, “We needed it.”
What we need in training, sure as shootin’, is to be consistent. And that’s been the name of the game for me since resuming triathlon training the second week o’ January. Since that time, I’ve logged 70,000yds in the pool, 1,300mi cycling, and 260mi running. For a guy as busy as I am, that’s not a bad base right there.
Anyway, what I love as much as the training is the thrill of racing. I’ve got a triathlon trilogy comin’ up, starting with HITS Napa Valley on 4/15. Then I’ll surely knock some time off my 2011 Wildflower time since I had just returned to the sport after a 3yr absence spent ultra-running. So here’s a snapshot of my training last week. I’m on spring break this week, so you know what that means…
