Still Alive… Part 2

In last Thursday’s post I hurriedly summarized the end of the year and circumstances that developed as I headed into the end of the year.  As I headed into December of 2015 I found myself injured and getting slower.  I decided I needed to take some time off and heal up.  I assessed the issue […]

Reflections of A Chilly February

February proved cold and bitter, providing great new seasonal challenges to my running regimen.  A few of my training runs felt almost spring like, but winter dominated in the form of frequent bitter cold and snowy dispatch.  Of course I did not let weather hinder my focus and resolve to improve my long distance capabities […]

Working the Plan

I know I have not directly stated my 2015 goals yet, I had a few things I was trying to clear up in my schedule before committing them to my blog.  Initially I had planned to cash in a free race entry for a race out in Portland,  but recent job instability has led me […]

Middle Season Retrospective

The end of August marks the end of the second 3rd of my yearlong progression.  For a reason I cannot remember I decided to split this year into thirds instead of quarters and use that metric to analyse and plan and regroup for the next. Triathlon Goals: The beginning of this quarter , beginning in […]

Ides of March: First Week Done

First week of March is in the books, surprising me how fast things are moving this month.  As I mentioned previously (here) my goals for March are simple: continue to prepare for triathlon season and focusing on my designed run program.  Of course adding  a Ragnar relay race into the beginning of next month has […]

February Wrap Up And March Goals

Lately my blogging habits have been utter rubbish.  If I have been lucky I have managed maybe a feeble post a week.  Of course this trend is not a result of creative drought, instead its a product of an extreme training schedule mixed with hectic work demands, the Olympics and extreme weather.  All that aside […]

Great Way To End A week and Start Another

Last month was a good month.  I managed to hit my highest monthly mileage ever, progressed through my swimming and cycling and got myself into a rhythm that will drive me into the beginning of my triathlon season.  The one achievement that eluded me in January though involved my maximum running distance. When I ran […]

January Reflection and Goals For February

The base goal for January served to ease my body back into the habits of scheduled training.  At the end of last year I reduced my workout efforts, continuing to train but without a scheduled dependency.  With the new year comes a new focus.  Unlike last year, where I worked to evenly improve in all […]

Still Alive

I am usually really good about posting at least my goals for the week, but the last two weeks I have been a bad blogger, I have not posted at all.  This has been mostly due to the storm of work I have been buried under lately and the volume of my workouts have taken […]

Second Week Of January: Done

This month is just whizzing by, hard to believe it is already the third training week of 2014.  With a new week comes the usual previous week reflection and the setting of new goals.  I felt loss in December when I stopped having goals to work towards, but it truly was a transition month where […]
