Police half marathon

Friday, April 11th, 2008

Does anyone out there have an entry into the Police Half Marathon that they aren’t going to use and interested in selling me?  I really want to race it, but alas it is full.

IRONMAN ARIZONA starts Sunday.  I’m really looking forward to seeing how it pans out.  I have a bunch of good mates racing it,…Chris Kennedy, Chris Brown, Sara Gross, and Jonathan Caron to name a few.  I hope they are all ready to rip up fast races!


friend mr. volume

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

I’ve been hitting up an old trusted friend with my training.  That friend never lets me down.  That friend is mr. volume.

Today I swam a total of 10km again.  4km in AM long course, really easy pull 40x100m on 1:30.

6km in afternoon with the Dinos, included some quick 50s. (16x50pull on :40, 16x50band-only on :45, and 16x50swim on :40).  I’m starting to feel great in the water again, it’s a real welcomed feeling.

I ran a cruisy 1hr50min afterwards.

I’ve averaged 150km of running the last 2 weeks, and I’m looking at keeping that mileage pretty close to this over the next 4 weeks.

Happy and loving life,

I’m putting on base miles real well,…had a great 1hr40min tempo run this morning, where I’m feeling real smooth and fluid. Quick change, and hopped into the pool for a cruisy 6000m of 10x[2x100m on 1:30, 2x100m on 1:25, 2x100m on 1:20],…sets 1-7 swim, 8-10 pull. Getting used to the volume all sub-threshold.

Scuffy, the open water Dinos swimmer who I like to train with just came home from Olympic Trials. I’ll be joining him in the pool tomorrow.
