Seattle Bound

all packed up to take the tandem and bob trailer to Seattle area for 6 days of riding. While I will be doing some other sights and some sea kayaking I want to get in about 60 miles a day. this will get me a good base week before the cyclocross races begin. starting next week we have the local cross races.....the thrilla

and then after that I will be doing his series in portland the crusade . I decided to not run the Portland marathon this year as it did not really fit into my training schedule for Ironman Idaho which is earlier in the year by a few months.

I will try and post some Seattle stories but of course will return with mucho pics after I return.

Went swimming last night at the 50 meter pool and only did about 600 meters and it felt like 6000 so I guess since it was the third swim of the year that's ok right? I am on to my base training now and planning on 6 days a week and have 11 months to go so not too concerned at this point. wow did i feel it in the core though after the!!!! so got up early to run this morning and caught a shot of the sun coming up before I head to work. the race has now is in fashion......thankfully most of it at this stage is just mixing in a lot of biking swimming and running without too structured of a workout. I just need time under each belt for the next month. Cyclocross season starts soon......
