Seems as though I tend to start my blog up again around the annual Friends of FSH, Fishing for a Cure annual auction. 1. Because I start getting excited for the auction. Especially this year, since there have been so many huge and exciting breakthroughs in research. 2. Because it’s that time of year again that everyone is gearing up training for this years’ season. With the Tour Down Under wrapped up today, the countdown for the Tour of California begins.
So where does that leave me? Well, I’m in the gym working on a lot of functional training and trying to really dial in my nutrition to maximize muscle gain. I didn’t apply for a CAF grant this year. Mainly because my body is changing so rapidly, I wasn’t able to commit to doing anything specific this year. The plan is to take it easy, get strong, dial the nutrition and see what happens. Last year I put way to many expectations on myself and it backfired. Well, not really. Backfired as far as any racing goes. I got to do some pretty amazing life changing things that weren’t race specific. So although I wasn't training regularly, I was hiking the Napali Coast and doing a bunch of other kick ass things.
I’m vicariously living through Johnny’s season : ) He plans on doing Bosie 70.3 again and a handful of other races. He’s got his races dialed into TrainingPeaks and I’m enjoying using my trainer’s knowledge here and there when he asks.
On the agenda this week….. give our bikes a bath! And mine needs to go to the shop for a little TLC.
