Back in training

Written on December 4, 2016

Back in training finally. Not at 100% percent, but close enough. I spent 45 minutes on the trainer yesterday and I ran somewhere between 6 and 7 miles with the huskies today. Here they are, ready to go:


I have the new season sketch out now. After two race transfers, we are set to race South Africa (4/2), Cairns (6/11) and Tremblant (8/20). They are about 9 weeks apart, which should be enough to recover, allow four months to get ready for the first one and close the year early for a longer off season which I will need by late August.

I will go alone to Port Elizabeth and Cairns, which sucks, but also the reasonable thing to do, I guess. Then we close the year in Tremblant together, our favorite race, with the family. 

Goals? Race them all well. Enjoy them. Get a PB as close to ten hours as possible. Except if I beat ten, in which case I want ten as far away as possible.

Langkawi is still lingering in the back of my mind. I went there greedy and a wreck. The theme of 2016, right? Langkawi was during US election week.
