you never know who you’re going to meet

April 14th, 2009

At the end of my track workout today, a guy approached me to say hi – he asked if I was a ‘distance guy’.  I supposed I was, so I acknowledged this was the case.  We got talking, and found out that his name was Cory Christopher,..the brother of 400m track world champion Tyler Christopher.   Pretty neat – Cory wants to get into triathlon, and might do the Cultus Lake Triathlon.

Yesterday’s training:  4hour bike round-trip to Hope; 40min Transition run

Today training: 1hour swim (mainset 1500m build,…19:35, last 500m in 6:15), 30min jog, 15min skipping/core, 90min easy spin with Allison (see photos from today below), TRACK/BIKE TRAINER WORKOUT: 20x(400m run, 3min bike at HR2 with running shoes (10beats below threshold ~140-144bpm) to 4:50mark, starting the next 400m on 5min),…400m times were 74-68sec.

Lots of these snow-peaked mountains around here…

And lush, green forests…
