Keeping My Head Level...


Did you guys notice how quickly I went a bit bonkers after my last race? "What am I gonna do? Where'm I gonna go? Core? Race Schedule? ArrrrrrGH!" Bah ha ha! Geesh... I am one unstable pup!

I went for a mellow spin with Drew on Monday of this week in Bend and as usual he was able to bring me back down to earth and chill me out a bit. I swear if I didn't have people like that in my life I would go 1,000 mph 24/7 until I completely crashed! THEN I would be so burned out that I couldn't even say the words, "brick session".

This picture aptly illustrates Drew's mentoring (though he doesn't yell). It's kind of a "Pull it together man!" type thing. Thanks Drew! You can see the pic in it's original context HERE if you'd like.

I also got to have dinner with Coach Matt and discuss some future plans with him as well as the race schedule for next year. There's a big question mark from him on the full Eugene marathon as well as the self-supported Ironman with Drew in August. Believe me... aggressive negotiations will be had on that one. (More about the self-supported Ironman later)

A fellow runner at work did Eugene this year and said it was a great marathon. Quite fast and flat plus the finish in the stadium. Although it does suck that winter is just around the corner so base and more base...

It's good to have friends like that.

Whats the problem with doing the mary? It's a full three months out from your a race.

Dude - don't hire a coach if you're not going to follow his advice. Otherwise, why bother?
