How Easy is “Recovery”

Jun/24/2014 in Focus Aid, General

Everybody is different. Everybody's body reacts differently to the same workout. Everybody's body recovers at different rates. So how easy do I need to go to "recover?" There is the recovery that you can do while you are not training, sleep,...

TRAINING CAMP ANYBODY?

Jun/19/2014 in Focus Aid, General

Since 2004 Western North Carolina has been my #1 choice for training getaways.  I have been to Mallorca & Fuerteventura in Spain, a few hot spots in Australia, trained in hundreds of places coast to coast in the US and Mexico and none of them...

Eagleman Champion

Jun/17/2014 in General, Race Reviews

A week out from the race I made a request that I have never done before in my career, I asked for a number change. On the start list I was number 5 and I had been number 5 twice before. The first was at...

Rev3 Knoxville

Jun/05/2014 in General, Race Reviews

After the craziness and disappointment from Wildflower I really had an aimless pair of weeks which didn't include much training at all because my quads were positively fried from riding with a dropped saddle. It gave me a feeling of the old days when...

Wildflower Triathlon – 4th

May/06/2014 in General, Race Reviews

It had been 9 years but just driving into the park it felt like yesterday. A decade later the place had not changed, tents and campers surrounding pop up tents for triclubs of the region ages ranging from the collegiate athletes and partying supporters to...

Picking Wildflower

Apr/29/2014 in General, Race Reviews

In 2005 I went to Wildflower to race the Olympic distance race since at that time many still regarded the race to be the collegiate national championship.  One year removed from college and no longer eligible to race at "USAT" Collegiate Nationals led me to...

70.3 San Juan Champion – AGAIN!

Apr/15/2014 in General, Race Reviews

Yes, we all have highs and lows, what goes up must go down. So when I returned to San Juan, Puerto Rico last week I knew there was only one place to go after winning last year, defend my title and be complacent or lose...
