Tuning In

The last 2.5 weeks of my season are here. How can I tell?

I am having strange thoughts about running, hiking and even walking! Hopefully summer is still around in Whistler in mid August.

I have also been spending some time at altitude which means a lot of recovery. As a result I've had some time to stay tuned into the things I'm passionate about: coaching, training, music and big world.

Recent reads:

1) Coaching: "They don't really care how much football you know until they know how much you care."

2) Limits: So if I can climb for 10 minutes at 5.8 w/kg that is still good?

3) Positive Change: It's a beautiful sport, and that is the way it should be!

4) Debt "The sooner the adjustments begin, the more gradual they can be. It’s easier to slow down from 70 mph by stepping on the brakes than by slamming into a wall."

5) 1hr Session w/ Grum@WetBandits: "Australia’s Triple J Radio mixups are known to host some of the finest in the funky/disco scene, and Grum was just featured. The perfect compliment to keep your Breakbot/Chromeo mood going when you finally take that track off repeat".

6) WetBandits Newest Release: "Here is a collection of rumpshakers that I have been getting real physical with lately. Perfect for fist pumping as we enter summer’s peak."

7) Skateboarding: BATTLE ROYAL!

Plus session 2 of Elk Grove Prologue Training went even better than Saturday's run. Still at elevation, cranked out a 12 watt improvement in average and better pacing. Booya!

Time: 9.26 / 1.06 / 2.03 / 1.42 / 2.06 / 0.55 / 0.42
Effort 1 @ July 23rd (Watts) : 335 / 367 / 349 / 350 / 327 / 366 / 523
Effort 2 @ July 26th (Watts): 347 / 426 / 374 / 359 / 334 / 372 / 463
