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....


The Art of Preparation

What is up folks, how is everyone doing?It always amazes me how much goes into preparation for a task... be it a training session, an international triathlon trip or a surf-camping trip with a baby!If you prepare early, the chances of being late or messing something up are smaller -although they still happen!Name it and chances are I already thought ahead and had it all prepared when the time came. I am known to plan things ahead of time...

Moments of uncertainty

Hello guys,As I'm transitioning into snowboarding, lots of questions come to mind... like: --do I really have it in me, to undertake such a challenge? I'm not getting any younger...I am a father now, priorities changed a bit --I don't have the same amount of time to devote to sports, as much as I'm trying.
