Coffee & Wine

This feels like my life most days:

Right now I'm filled with coffee and ready to head off for a run.
I'm sure later this afternoon after my bike ride, I will be drinking a glass of wine and be thinking "chin up."

December Training and New Gear

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

It’s been a good couple of weeks. My workplace closes the week of Christmas so I get an extra week of time off to train. The weather leading up to the holiday was rainy and cold. Christmas Day was cold but I was able to run and later bike outside.

This coming week isn't look too well.

Total training hours this past week: 12 hours. Yesterday, I biked 60 miles with my friend Missy on the Santa Cruz bike path. 

Today, I had my first long swim in a really long time: 2,500 years in just over an hour. 

I’m excited to have new gear. I love my Suunto Ambit3 which is so easy to download data. 

A new Rudy Project Wingspan aero helmet that I will review tomorrow:

I am now in full-on Ironman Texas training.

I’ll be compiling on January 1 my total miles for 2014 including swimming, biking, and running this year; similar to last year. I am pretty sure I didn't meet the distance goals but will try again in 2015.
