Time for some fun...


So now that I have my slots secured for the Xterra National and World Champs it's time to have some fun... and train my ass off. I have just been keeping things unstructured since I got home from Virginia. I have got in a couple runs and swims, and been riding quite a bit.

I did my first ever mountain bike race on Sunday and I am hooked. It was so much fun... and by fun I mean hard. I have never ridden a bike that hard for that long. It felt great to push myself on the bike. I will be defintely be doing more mountain bike racing over the next couple of months as I build towards my A races.

Here's a quick review of sunday's race in photos:








15.96 Mile
1:35:18
Avg HR: 181 bpm
Max HR:197 bpm
Total Ascent: 2143ft.
Prior to Nationals and Worlds there is only one triathlon that I will be focusing on. It's the Snow Valley Xterra on 8/5. Last year I was 2nd in my AG and 3rd Overall. I would really like to try and take the overall title... so that's my goal. Other than that I will probably do a couple of sprint tri's just as threshold/brick workouts and anything else that sounds fun.

Here's rough outline of the rest of my season... as of about 5 minutes ago. I am sure things will change.

7/15 - Rim Nordic #2 - MTB race
9/1 - 24 hours of Adrenalin - 24 hour mtb race (part of 3 man team)
9/15 - Aztec Invitational 5k - Dirt Dog XC series

That's it's. Hopefully I'll see some you out on the roads and trails... that's where I'll be.

Thanks for the great comment on my blog! Sounds like your season is going well. I LOVE my new mountain bike. I don't know what I'm doing out there but it's really fun to go out and play in the dirt.
