Starting 2020 Properly

On January, 12th I raced the first race of my season a 20k Time Trial at Fiesta Island in San Diego where I hold for the second consecutive year the Fiesta Island 20k Time Trial Series Championship in Para-Athlete Category. This was not my fastest time at 22.5mph average speed vs 23.8mph I did last October, but a great run considering the following. This time of year the track and weather conditions are not conducive to fast times at...

Thankful

I believe that we are all blessed by God with individual and different talents but it is up to us to discover, nurture, appreciate, develop, not squander, and use those talents appropriately. I am very thankful to God for mine.  We all face individual obstacles in our day to day lives, have different setbacks in addition to blessings. We must be thankful and respectful to others.As always work hard, have faith, love, stay blessed,Alfonso

Today I went over National Standard for my class H-3 23.8mph

Today I raced at Fiesta Island 20k Individual Time Trial. I was able to best my previous personal best and go over National Standard average for a 20k Time Trial with a time 31:20 today and 23.8mph average speed. I also got to retain my Fiesta Island ITT Series Championship for 2019. I dedicated this race to breast cancer survivors and those who are fighting it. Thanks to my sponsor Loma Linda University Team PossAbilities I have the equipment...


Back to what I do

Today I did a 20k Individual Time Trial at Piru. It has been about a month back to training since the health issues that forced me to miss nationals and take two months off. This is my second time trial since the time off. The first one was more of a feeler to see how my body and mind would respond to putting and sustained but not full on race effort. I had no race training for this race....


Feeling better thanks to God

After three months since my last race and two months off from any serious or consistant training due to health issues. Thanks to God I was able to race yesterday at Piru 20k ITT. I did not beat my fastest time of 34:28 but got a 3rd personal best time of 35:37. My new handcycle ran great thanks to my sponsor PossAbilities at LLUMC I have the new CarbonBike. Teammate Brett Richards had a great personal best time of...

Recovery

Recovery has taken longer than I expected. It has been a very difficult and depressing couple of months from having to miss Nationals and other races, seeing my race conditioning and all around fitness diminish due to focusing on recovery and doing very little to anything else, finding out my younger sister has cancer and is now in chemo therapy, and other health issues with family members.  But thanks to God I now am starting to feel better. I...
