Getting ready for the weekend

I have been going through some rough time with my ankle as I reported few weeks ago. Last week I have pulled out of a half marathon race and continued my recovery - I have been doing lots of biking, swimming and water running lately. I'm happy to report that things are starting to look up.

This coming weekend I'll be racing in a short course duathlon not too far from my home and I hope to have good race. It is a regular 5k run - 14mi bike and 5k run. Not necessarily my format (now I would prefer abou 2 mi swim, 60mi bike and 2mi run given my training focus ;-).
I'm really looking forward to the race. Then on Sunday I'll be volunteering at the local Tough Mudder race (google it).
Good luck to all of you racing this weekend and I hope you have weather as great as what we expect (80F in the afternoon).

My long time running buddy is no more

I was sad the other day when I found my great running and bike trainer buddy struggling to start and charge. I had this one since I started exercising back in 2005 and it has been with me on three continents and in countless countries. Oh well I'll miss you buddy - your replacement will be here next week. Until then I'll be sweating into my iPhone ;-).
