Wow, what a total slacker! Turns out I haven't posted in like forever so apologies. I know that nobody missed me but in the rare event that you thought the desert got the best of me, no WELFARE check needed. I've still been occupied with the running, biking and photography...A different kind of triathlon! I did manage to fit in a race, well kind of, with the virtual version of the Rock N Roll marathon. Being a virtual race I elected to "just" do the half over the full that I usually kick off the season with. While my training has been far from structured i did manage to throw down a decent time anD of course, think i could have Performed better but dizzam...its hard to push yourself when you don’t have anyONe to chase down! To keep it sort of real, i ran in Tempe and was surprised there was no finish line chOcolate milk, what a bunmer!
As for training, well therE aRe no rest days and somedays consist of 2 or 3 different run and bike workouts or the occasional run up the camel. I mean, just hiking it is too boring! With Grandmas creeping up i’Ve started to crank up thE mileage and will be doing 15-20 mile runs Until i’m happy with my pace.
to keep you in thr loop with the photography gig, take a look at this album from the Sonoran 100 TT put on By Tri Scottsdale. Some of these boys...and girls really Pushed some serious watts and killer times! Pedro drUG out the PG Squad as well as a training day and he was no snail either!
I need to circle back and also mention this killer kit from Wattie Ink! THe Hit Squad gear this year is flippin' amazing and even has some orange on it! Our Wattie family is seriously the best out there and they make incredible clothing. If you ever want to belong to a supportive group, reach out the Hit Squad and join the team! If nothing else, try on some of thier gear and enjoy your training and racing a little more.
SO THAT’S A WRAP, JUST A QUICK UPDATE. WITH THE CHAOS IN THE WORLD, I’M JUST THANKFUL TO BE LIVING THE DREAM DOWN HERE IN THE VALLEY. REMOVED ALL THE TOXIC STRESS AND HECK, HAVE A REALLY KILLER TAN! PEACE OUT. NOW GET OUT THERE AND TRAIN HARD, WE’LL ALL BE RACING SOON AND THOSE STRAVA RESULTS STAY ONLINE FOREVER!
WORK HARD. STAY HUMBLE. A LIFE FILLED WITH SWIM, BIKE & RUN. 5Ks TO MARATHONS, SPRINT TO IRONMAN 140.6
