We're a long way from January, think cool thoughts
You see, I'm about a second generation american that's half German, quarter Cech and quarter English. I've always associated myself more with the English quarter but my build is more Cech/German, as in big boned. The English side is made up of much slighter men. Anyway, the point I'm getting at is, my young american, northern european blood doesn't take too kindly to the seasonal shift to summer. I'd prefer to climb into the den and hibernate until 'cross season, but that's just not going to happen.
So for all you haters (Bryan and Ryan), now is the time to come out and kick my ass while I'm down, because I won't be able to do much for the next two months in this heat and humidity. My body just doesn't take to it.
But, with that being said, I've got some work to do. You'll notice a new bit on the sidebar, "The Program". I've finally put an event schedule together. It's rather, shall I say, expansive, so it's more of a wish list. The USGP's, 'Cross Nats and the 5-O are pretty set in stone, as are the local MTB's and CX's. The rest, are negotiable. So, with about 12 weeks until the first 'cross race it's time to start focusing on some speed work.
'Cross will be a thinner, more serious affair in 2010
I've got my 3K of base miles to build off of, so the first six week block will focus on longer duration intervals while the last six week block will focus on short duration, high intensity stuff. Oh fun.
