D&L Trail LSD Run dry dusty feet

Now with the NJ Devilman race behind me it is time to focus on the final 8 week build for Ironman Coeur d’Alene. Unfortunately, the affects of the Devilman Half Lite continued to linger well into the week. I was very exhausted on Monday and decided it would be best to take a rest day. On Tuesday, …

IMCDA 2015 Training Log-Week#17(Apr 20-26 2015)

Farm near Fleetwood

Only 10 more weeks until Ironman Coeur d’Alene! Week 16 was a pretty solid week of training. I ended up with around 15 hours total volume, which also included one day off due to me being stressed out from a screw-up at work. It also inlcluded no strength training whatsoever since I totally blew that …

Lehigh Parkway Run April 12 2015

Only 11 more weeks until Ironman Couer d’Alene! Week 15 was another build week. I had planned about a 16 hour week in volume, but ended up with only 13 hours. This was mostly due to a shoulder bursitis flare-up issue that kept me out of the pool and some dog emergency issues on Friday. I was …

Week 14…back to building again. It feels good to be too. Temps are starting to warm-up again, although the winds have been howling away. My HRV is back in the green again, so full speed ahead. The body likes to be working hard. While I had planned on a 16 hour training week, I only …

The Value of the Long Run or Ride

garbage, junk, trash, pitch

While out on my long run of the week the other day, I was thinking about about all the times I have heard the long run referred to a “junk miles” lately. We have been innundated with all of these so-called experts who keep spouting out how to “hack” everything.  People love to hear someone tell …

Yuki at Rodale Fitness Park

Only 16 more weeks to go until Ironman Coeur d’Alene! Time to get serious now. This is where many training plans start, so I guess this where I enter my build phase. Probably a good segway here with a couple easy weeks after a pretty solid base phase. Full speed ahead! This week started out …
