Fear not

Thanks for the motiviational comments and emails regarding my trip but unstructured training while on vacation does not mean no training. In my week away I was able to sneak in:
  • 2 one hour long spin classes while on the cruise ship
  • 1 tempo run with my daughter.
  • 1 snorkling session in 6-10ft seas in Mexico
  • 2 days at Disney covering 4 parks. My wife wore a pedometer as a test. One day day had a little more than 19000 steps and the other was 17000. This translates into 9.5 miles and 8.5 miles.

After I landed on Sunday I hopped on the bike trainer to shake out the legs a bit and followed it up with a bike threshold test on Monday night (2x20' hard!). Tuesday has a mile repeats running with a swim session at night (perhaps even a swim threshold test).

Two months until St Anthony's. A little over 3 until Rev3 Quassy and 248 days until IMFL. Most importantly, there is the possibility of riding my bike outside this weekend! Saturday might be 40 balmy degrees.

Game on.

That is more than most people do on their busy training weeks!
Snorkeling in Mexico sounds fantastic right about now!

Nice productive vacay!

I was shocked on our cruise to see that folks had brought their bike shoes for spin class - I hadn't thought to be that well prepared.

People took cleated bike shoes on a cruse? That's COOL! I would never think to do that!! LOL!
