Ironman University Certified Coach

IRONMAN Certified Coach

For anyone still reading this blog, I have to apologize for having been a bit out of communication here over the last few months. Besides the busy holiday season, I had been heads down working through the Ironman University online coaching certification since September. This course pretty much consumed the majority of my free time …

Race Report: Ironman Coeur d’Alene 2015

Last year at Ironman Coeur d’Alene the weather was pretty windy and cool. The water temperatures was in the 50’s and it was cool and windy. I signed up for this race specifically because that type of weather suits me well. Cool, damp and even a little rainy. I don’t like the heat. So, when …

Fuel Your Training with Natural Energy Alternative…Or even better, Amrita Bars

Lehigh Parkway Run April 12 2015 - Post-run recovery streamside with an Amrita Bar

TrainerRoad 20 minute FTP Test Result

Ahhh the old love-hate relationship with tapering continues. While greatly anticipated, this break in training and the general feeling of malaise that comes along with it I did not. I guess you can’t have everything. The Ironman Lawn… I was finally able to get my lawn looking somewhat manicured with some extra time on my hands now. …

IMCdA 2015 Training Log-Week#22&23(May 26-June 7)-The Last Push

I am going to double up here on the last two weeks of build before my 3 week taper into Ironman Coeur d’Alene. It has been a pretty brutal 2 weeks since I really never had a full recovery week since about 5 weeks ago. I did a couple little 3 day recovery before and …

Race Report: NJ Devilman Half Lite 2015

NJ Devilman Half 2015 Run Finish

The last time I raced the New Jersey Devilman Half Lite, it was a cold dreary morning. I vividly remember the “ice cream headache” I had gotten when I plunged my head into the cold, dark water of Cedar Lake. I ended up  with a decent result, but I remember thinking I would not be in …

TrainerRoad Pain Cave Amrita

Well, I am back. This off-season has been pretty uneventful ever since I completed Timberman 70.3 back in August. We did take a trip to Italy back in September which I just finished posting yesterday. I have continued to train and I did complete the 180 mile City-to-Shore ride, but I have had more achievments on Untappd …

Ironman Coeur d’Alene 2015 Here I Come!!!

Well how things change. I was planning on taking next year off from a full Ironman, but Denise and I got talking about it at dinner. All she had to say was “I wouldn’t mind going to Coeur d’Alene next year.” And I was on the computer registering before she could say another word. I …
