I had a great weekend. My friend got married on the 31st (will post that later). Just want to give a blurb on my training.
So what did I do for the first day of 2007?
Bike - 105' (1 hr 45 min)
Run - 30'
Bike - 20'
Stretch - 15'
The run was with two friends. I am slowly recruiting people in my church to run with me. I first got Mel to run. She is crazy b/c she likes to run in the winter time. Yesterday we got another person (J-Dawg) to come out. There were others that are interested but can't make it. We might have a group in the future...excellent.
My training for the Dec have been on and off. In fact, I can say I slack. I did put in a lot of running mileage. Just hitting the pavement everytime I can and stroll around my urban neighbourhood.
Yesterday run was great. I was feeling so good that on the way back I was ripping it. If not for Mel yelling 'Cliff, slow down..you are going too fast', I would go full out. Enjoyed great company and the wilderness.
There is something coming up ahead with regards to training I haven't annouce yet....but will do so SOON.
I spent last night praying and reflecting the past year. It killed my sleeping schedule (remember my 8 hr challenge?). Today, I still got up and do a 30 min jog.
Despite my lack of training, I am feeling super. My body wants to train more. 2 hr bike ride is not enough. Hmm.. a 3 hr bike ride is more like it. Perhaps a 2 hr run afterwards. If I put 45 min swim in front of it, I will be doing a half ironman. :D. Hmm...better take it easy....
I need to get some swim in. Most of the local pools are close until Mid Jan. Ekk..what can you do...at least I am amping up the run and bike volume.
I hope everyone have a great new years....resolution wise, I have none. I do have a list of things I want to focus on 2007.
