Happy Holidays

After my T-day turkey trot 5K I thought the food was ready to go.
But... this is what I saw when I arived for the feast. A bit of an oven snafu...

Food Coma:

Fellow training partner feeling the effects of a hard swim/ turkey Brick...

I hope everyone’s thanksgiving was safe and filling. This time of year I get lots of questions regarding the future. "What’s next on your training plan EK? What goals do you have? What do you think my goals should be? I feel fat because I haven’t been training... not really a question but it happens.
I just did an article for the PTS newsletter on planning your next season. this is a great time of the year to do this.
Take some time to think about what you would like to accomplish next season, look back and remember what you did and did not accomplish last season. set some goals talk to your friends family and coach about what is doable for the coming season.

As always lots of good reading in here.

The older I get the more I have to take. 2 Ibuprofen before, 2 after. 4 sports legs, 1 gram of L-Carnosine, 1 gram of glutamine, 1 can of GO FAST (stuff rocks) and I still can't win!

It just shows you how much skill is involved in Cyclocross. i think the winner today do 4 hr. yesterday and rod 2 hr to the race...

I feel like a looser!
Any way not such a bad race to day. Check out the race report!

As you can see a bit off balence in the back here...

Off Season

I have had lots of people, friends clients and fellow coaches alike ask me about next season. "what should I do?" "how do I get better, faster?" "How do I figure out, for sure, what my weaknesses are?"
These are all good questions. I wrote an article for the PTS newsleter which covers just that.

You can check it out here.

and other PTS articles here.

more cyclocross stories coming soon.
Train safe!

A huge win for Chuck Coyle's team McIntyre Dick & Partners at the Tour of the southland!
Fighting off crashes and brutal double stages teammate Greg H. bridged to the break and made it happen!

I road out to watch the UCI cross race in Longmont yesterday and it got me quite motivated. Then I also heard that they were paying out 1000 big ones to the top ten in the cat 3 race! So i am getting ready to race again today. the race is literaly accross the street.
