Yea, yea Montgomery’s got the answer

February 16, 2010

I’m halfway into my training camp here in Auburn, AL.  The weather has been all over the place since I’ve been here.  One day we actually got three inches of snow and the next day I was running in shorts again. 

Training has been going well, I’ve been taking advantage of the trails and logging a bunch of miles since I’ve been here.  I’m basically training like a marathoner for a few weeks to get in a solid base for the track season.

Dave Scott-Thomas and I decided yesterday that I will probably get more benefit from training with the group in Guelph than the benefit of altitude in Flagstaff throughout March-April.  In the past I have gone to Flagstaff with a teammate (Cal and then Gillis) who was training for the same race.  For different reasons this spring no one else from Speed River can get away for 4+ weeks and I’m not really keen on doing those specific workouts solo.  At least I can fire up the tent and get some benefit from sleeping at 10 000 feet. 

A few people have asked about Nornee.  She is doing fine and keeping busy.  I didn’t bring my computer so I won’t get any clips up until the 26th or so.  In fact I really don’t have any footage yet, something to work on for the next week…  stay tuned later next week.

Olympic coverage sucks in the US and I can’t watch the streaming stuff live at CTV.  I watched splits for the men’s downhill yesterday on the comp and learned my lesson to just wait for prime time and see the race unfold then.

Cool blog from Bruce Deacon about running a marathon at the age of 12 (see link on right).

Dathan Ritzenhein has an informative blog that I recently discovered. is always good too, haha.

    Just curious what you think of Shawn Whites hair?

      I told a few people I was going to cut my Shaun White tribute hair after he won the gold. My hair is much shorter now.
