Week 17- 01.29.08- 02.03.08

M2 class has been awesome lately! I finally convinced Susan to come join me for a class! Yi brings friends to class...Yi gets M2 socks! So this week was more double workouts...I workout in the AM...go to work...and then workout again in the PM...usually a run or something. I learned first hand this week how important having my recovery drink is..especially if I just finished a workout in the evening and I am planning on working out the next morning! After Wednesday night track, I went to M2 Thursday morning and felt sh*ttier than ever! result of skipping my recovery drink- lesson learned! I was in Colorado this past weekend and did a training run in Boulder and Colorado Springs with Haven (well..he showed me to the path and then off our seperate speeds he went!)- definitely felt the difference with the altitude. It was beautiful up there...a nice change of scenery from my normal run routes!

Speaking of running and track..can we talk a little about track ettiquette?! The track is like a freeway people...faster on the left...slower on the right! On Wednesday, there was a crap load of people out yet I want to say only about 25% of them knew of track ettiquette!! If you know you're going to stop or slow down...MOVE OVER to the right but don't just stop! And what's up with the people that like to do group lunges in lanes 6-9?! Seriously people?! Really? There is a nice space up top!! Lots of it! The track is for running!! As long as there are's for running..jogging or walking! I am normally not a track snob but man Wednesday was just annoying and with the Spring Tri Team coming out to the track's going to be a mad house with all 100+ of them!

So who is Louie Bonpua? I've been asked that by quite a few of you who read my blog last week. In short, he is one of the most inspirational not to mention brave Ironteamer you will ever hear of (no disrespect to our honorees)! The video below says it all!
