The surf was huge over the weekend. I am hoping it will calm down a bit this weekend so I can take out my SUP.
Today I actually felt like I did some damage:
Morning Masters- butterfly day!, lunch time at the gym for some core and leg work, evening 10 mile run. Hopefully I'll be able to move tomorrow!

Fred Maggiore headed down under last weekend to compete in Ironman New Zealand on March 1st. Although this will be Fred's first Ironman race, he is optimistic for a podium finish and a berth to Ironman Hawaii in October. Check out Ironmanlive.com on race day for live splits of Fred's day. Good luck Fred, I share your pain!

Tempo run this morning with Mike and Rusty's training group. Warmup 4 miles, 5 miles tempo at 7:10/mile, 4 mile cool down. We were suppose to descend our miles but Jill and I kinda pooped out the last mile. It's been looking pretty stormy all day. Not looking good for my ride tomorrow.

Early in the season I always find climbing hills gets the most bang for the buck. So off I went up Old San Marcos, Painted Cave, down to the Paradise Store where I sat in the sun a bit to warm up, then up and over La Cumbre peak. I haven't done this ride since training for IM Canada in 06 and it felt like it. Probably 5 or 6 K of climbing!

While I haven't been totally inactive over the past year and a half since IMC, I took a prolonged break from racing. I only recently unpacked my bike from the bike case! I signed up for the half ironman Honu race in June so that's my big motivation. I've been reading Chuckie V's blog and found some renewed inspiration. Chuckie has been posting the training of Angela Naeth , a triathlete wunderkind who is the second coming of Paula Newby Frasier. For those who have never met Chuckie, former IMC champion, he is an affable, laid back kind of guy. As a coach, he seems to be pretty on top of things. He can quote VO2 max's and anaerobic thresholds with the best of them. So with a little renewed motivation, I gear it up one more time. Tomorrow. Or maybe this weekend.
