Today I ran on the treadmill for 90min, (1% grade), starting at 7.0mile/hr, increasing speed by .25mile/hr every 10min,…I jumped from 8.7mile/hr to 9.5mile/hr from 80min to 90min in an attempt to find my upper HR2 (it was climbing slowly based on this protocol).

There’s so many races,…yet so few months to get them all in!!!

As per usual my A-race will be IMCanada.  I love this race, and everything about it: the course, all the volunteers, how professionally it’s organized, and the fact that it’s on home soil.

Now, how to get from my current fitness, the best shape possible will be the challenge.  There’s loads of races in between,…I’m leaning towards a few of the OUTBACK EVENTS races as springboard races.  These are always so well organized, including the Canadian Long Distance Championships in Osoyoos (Desert Half), and the newly acquired Sylvan Lake Triathlon.

Also on my race calendar as the Calgary Ironman 70.3,…this will be a beautiful venue and race overall.

Interesting way to get to an Earth Day event

My brother manufactured this ‘truck bike’.  This video he made may help shape our thinking on transportation and how it relates to responsible living from an environmental perspective.
