All I do is bust my guns
Almost one week in Flagstaff, AZ. This first week was my “altitude adaptation/recover from 30km race” period. I took two days off running after the Around the Bay road race and then put in some easy kilometers (21-28km/day) including a 12 minute tempo on Saturday. The tempo was the first part of the workout, which was followed by some fartlek for the rest of the guys (Boorsma, Milne, Gillis, Genest and Winter). Now I’m looking forward to getting in some solid work leading up to the Yonge Street 10km on April 22nd.
April is the beginning of Run Canada Month. I just checked the site to make sure I had the right link and I’m already overwhelmed by the support that has come in! The fund is helping us get the proper training we need in order to be ready for the Olympics. Eric and I are able to train at altitude and it was great having Brenda here for physio during the first week and Ron will be here next week to make sure we’re in good working order. My hamstring has been improving each day and I’m confident with good care it will completely come around.
Also, Nate Brannen is blogging again http://www.natebrannen.com/news.php?id=55 I’ll wait for some consistency before putting him back on the blogroll. Plus there are a couple of slackers who are on the blogroll chopping block…
