Training 5/18/2010

Today was supposed to be another run day, but my soleii (soleuses?) are sore on both sides from the barefoot (in the Evos) hills on Sunday.

So I hit the Steve Cotter Floor Core #1 followed by Steve Maxwell’s 300 Kettlebell challenge. Still amazed at how great a workout that is.

Xterra Triathlon Training 5/16/2010

Run Day.

6 miles with hill repeats. I have a perfect little crushed gravel path that .66 miles from my house. About 300 feet of gain and exactly .75 miles from gate to gate. It’s lined with thorough bred horses. Maybe I’ll take a pic.

Anyway, this is the longest I’ve gone in the Terra Plana Evos and felt frickin’ great.

Bike and swim- Xterra training 5/15/2010

F%$# F&^% F!@#

After schlepping my Superlight down to Treads in parker to fix the ghost shifting problem, I now have a not-shifting problem in the back. So I bascially but in about 4 miles on a 3 speed and came home.

Luckily, I couldn’t sell the Fisher 29er, so I’ll take that out on the flat stuff for about an hour and a half.

Update after riding: OK- the 29er still rocks. Glad I couldn’t sell it. Damn that thing is FAST. If only I could handle it in the technical stuff.

Anyway, loose derailleur cable, which I am ashamed to admit I didn’t figure out on my own. Now, off to the pool w family¬†for a quick 1500.
