Specificity

June 24, 2009

Now that Rev3 is far back in the rear view mirror and the only thing in my sights for the rest of the season is Timberman, officially 58 days away. With some time on my hands before the next time I enter race mode, I’m taking a look back at everything, reexamining my training and changing things around a lot. The one major change that I’m making is MORE BRicks!

And in the spirit of making changes real fast, I’m heading back to Connecticut for my little sister’s college graduation party and decided to take advantage of the time back at home base to redo the Rev3 bike/run course. I feel like I still have something to prove out there. Not to anyone else. Just myself.

I know that I can push through the bike and still have enough juice left in the tank for a solid 13.1 mile run. I’m dubbing this weekend my “Rev 4 BRick Workout.” I don’t know if I’ll be able to sneak my way into Quassy for an early swim, but if not, it will be a nice hard 69.1 miles of LOVE this weekend.

Hopefully this time I won’t bonk like last time and have to drag myself across the finish line. Wish me luck!

  1. great, thanks for scaring me about timberman – i gots some work to do!!!!


  2. great for going back out to that course and proving to yourself…that’s what it’s all about.

    the fact that timberman is only 58 days away is crazy because that sounds so close, but i always think of it as the last big hurrah of the summer.

    Bricks are good – they will be your new friend. I have made it a habit now to always do a run after a long ride, even if it’s only for 20 minutes, just to condition the muscle memory.


  3. Good luck man!
