Yes, it's official- I am a blog slacker....I have good intentions everytime I update my blog but then one day rolls into the next and I fall off the map.....again.
Definitely a lot happening since my last update....
FLoyd Landis....what can I say....hopefully it gets sorted out and he is found innocent. The flip side would be horrible for cycling and the TDF....
Finally a reprieve from the "hell-like" heat also....the weekend temps may top out in the high 70's and I am planning to GO BIG....30 days out from IM Canada and all of a sudden this whole race has become frighteningly real for me. I have put together some solid training lately but there were periods in April / May / June where the training was pretty spotty. Whatever, I'll give it a go and if I blow up....then so be it!

I was dreading my long run all day for some reason....maybe the volume is taking its toll but I was not feeling the running love and made every excuse before I finally headed out the door at 7:30pm....of course my slacker ways had me out running until 10 friggen pm....the only consolation was that it was cooler out after 9pm. The hills in the last 30 minutes also SUCKED.
Thank you IPod for getting me through this long one....hopefully only a couple more long ones before the race

Legs were a bit beat after the long run so took it a bit easier on the bike which worked well with all the WIND tonight. One of the few rides up here where I actually had to do the white-knuckle death grip and wrestle the bike to keep it on the road.....high cadence spinning into the wind and hammering whenever i had the wind at my back....ended up going out a bit too far and was racing the last bit of sunlight home.....made it in at 9:05 pm....I really need to cut that shit out.....not good being out on the roads so late.......and dare I say it?.....it was actually a bit chilly with the wind out there.....triple digit temps are overrated....hopefully we won't be seeing them again anytime soon
