After a day of rest yesterday for Easter, it was time to take a hard look at the calendar and see where I was at. There was less than 8 weeks until Galena and less that 20 weeks until Steelhead.

WOW. I am feeling comfortable with my swimming. I am confident in my running. My biking is not where it needs to be yet.

Galena offers the most challenging bike course. The hills are unending and on some of the downhills I have come close to 40 mph. Spin class and a trainer does not get you ready for that. I am hoping for outside biking soon.


Another change that I need to make is my strength training. I was doing it routinely for several weeks. I just am able to find every excuse not to do it. Time is running short so it is time to head back to the weights.

I got up early and made it to 530am spin. Added some strength training at lunch. Now I need to continue.

Waddling to get on a roll..............

I love it!.. what do runners do on a holiday... count the weeks and evaluate the training schedule.

You may already be aware of this but I think its fever outfitters that is doing training rides on the Galena course in April.... I am hoping to make one or two myself - Lord knows I need the hill time in the saddle - and lets not even forget that uphill of the run leg, or 2nd run leg if your doing the duathlon...

I think it gets hard this time of year to stay focused on the necessary things for training. We get impatient because of the weather. We want to be outside. Inside workouts start falling to the wayside. But at least you know what to do, so you should be able to get it done, somehow.
