recovery time... and some random photos.

Things are going according to plan this week and I am recovering nicely. After 4 pretty big weeks a recovery week was definitely in order. The volume is down but there is has been some intensity thrown in and when I have fired it up I have felt great. Racing this weekend should be fun as I should actually be feeling pretty rested, which wasn't the case in my last 3 races (Rim Nordic #4, Xterra Snow Valley and the Solana Beach Triathlon).

Below are some random photos from past races and of course I had to throw some food in there.

Nice man...keep the pics of the food coming, it's always nice to look at delicious healthy eats and hard training to help keep motivation up

Niiiiiice pics.
I'll say it again, you're one tough dude...fast too.
I'll also say this again, what's with the lowfat cheese? It looks like you don't need to eat lowfat anything.
'scuse me while I wipe the drool from my face. Yummy eats.

Top of the food chain. Must be rough having those trails in your back yard. Location, Location, Location. Nice work as always.
