Red dirt fun.
Solid week. This week was a run focused week with my original goal to be to jump my mileage over 70 for the first time this year but with the Behind the Rocks 50k at the end of the week it did not quite work out that way.  As the week went on I kind of star...

Back to Forward Progress
Now we are back on track, knock on wood.  Second week in a row of hitting ~15 total hours and the stupid sinus infection is now gone, thank God I am over it.  Click to enlarge Last week I stated that I was pondering on how to put the plan together.  Up to t...

Month of Sickness- Feb's Numbers
What a shitty month.  My total hours were more than half of what I did in January, 28 hours verses 72 hours which is why it has been so quite on here, nothing to report.  As you can see from the chart below I took off 9 days off this month, all due to being...

January Numbers- Big Month for me
Since the month ends on a Saturday instead of doing my weekly review I will just post the month of January numbers instead. Just in case you are wondering about the week here you go, still have Sunday to go so will add 2ish hours of trail running most likel...

Recovery week? Not so sure of that.
I really hate that stupid countdown clock in the sidebar but it is a motivating reminder.  Yes I will most likely bitch about it through the year.  145 days until the start of Leadman as of this morning. I flagged this week as a recovery type of week which ...

Week 2- Trying to Discover the Balance.
“Better to live each day with discipline than to suffer
a life of regret”  Not sure where I saw this quote at this week but it has stuck with me as I try and figure out a good training, work, and family balance this past week.   It has been an interesting w...

Bike Focused Week
Back to what I would consider a "normal" volume type of week that this Leadman challenge is going to require, pretty happy about that even though I am a little tired this Monday morning.  Per my last post I stated that I am taking James advice to try and ha...

That's more like it.
Starting to get back to what I think should be a normal week of 15 hours.  After being sick in February then taking a few weeks to build back up so I didn't run the risk of getting sick again which I did this week anyways.  Started getting a running nose on...

Forced Rest Week
Sometimes I guess you don't have a choice when your rest week falls.   This was one of those weeks.  Started feeling the tingling feeling in the nose on Monday so I wrapped in warm clothes on a 65 degree and tried to sweat it out Lucho style.  Did not work,...

Week 3 - Pushing the Volume a Little Bit
"Ask yourself: 'Can I give more?'. The answer is usually: 'Yes'." -Paul Tergat, Kenyan professional marathoner  So my whole goal this week was to push the total hourly volume of all activities combined a little bit with a loose goal of 50 miles running, 100...

Last Post! Wrap up of the year.
Well that was a fun yet expensive project.  By the end of the year I was burned out in trying to locate beers that I have not had yet in the mix and match cooler.  Thank God for Google spreadsheets so I could access it on my phone to see what I have and hav...
