Blog Break

The past couple of weeks I've realised that I have not built the base that I need to to reach the time goals that I've set for myself. I think the milage is good, but there are other aspects of base-building that need to take place, as well, in order for the base to be a good base. I've had alot of fun building milage, but my race goals aren't about "just having fun" so why should my training be about just having fun? I'm going to focus 100% on having a complete base before choosing any goal races. Any other way I'm only setting myself up for failure. I'm going to take a break from blog documenting my training and hope to be back in a few months ready to go - standing on the shoulders of giants feeling strong.


  1. I hear you, loud and clear. Granted it's about having fun for me (otherwise, no thanks), but I want results that make it all worthwhile. I've you've competed most of your life, it's tough to go out and just finish.

    That's why it's all about getting healthy (I'm not there yet) and having fun, "recovery." Too bad you're taking a break from recording the grind (the blog is my training log). But I understand.

    Pliny is not in the mail yet.
    I have to fix his time machine.

  2. What are you going to do different?

  3. Matt - No worries on the Pliny, you're teaching me some discipline in patience.
    GZ - alot of boring high milage, low intensity. There just won't be anything interesting to report.
