Base for 2010 season starts this week!

Strength & core focus!

I think my light workout days are over or at least that's what coach said when he gave me my three week's worth of active recovery workouts! Next block of focus will be on building strength and core for IM St. George May 2010. You may think, why so early? Well, if you saw the course profile, you'd understand! In fact, I'll share! See below!

My initial plan for 2010 was Ironman Canada. When I got an email from the IM office about IM St. George, I didn't think twice about it until I got an email sent from coach out to his athletes saying how great it'd be for us to do since he plans on attending. So then, I started to think about it. I told him that I had planned on IM Canada. He told me to try something new. A few minutes later, I respond back with, "ok, have slot!" Such a sucker! A few weeks later, course profiles were up, stared at it and thought, "crap! what did I get myself into?" Copy and pasted link to coach with the subject title, "uh...what is this?" His response, "What?  2x Tam?  Not so bad...:-)." Right! Hoping for nice Winter conditions here in the Bay- looks like Mt. Tam is going to be my winter playground this year! 

Bike Mt. Tam + run Mt. Tam= lots of pre-season strength and core work!

Workout Summary-
Swim- 1 hour and 0 minutes
Bike- 4 hours and 43 minutes
Run- 1 hour and 0 minutes
Total workout- 6 hours and 43 minutes
