well it went from clean dirt single track to snow and winter overnight. so with that I will be stuck inside for the most part on a trainer for awhile ( although as you all know I throw the studded tires on the bikes and do ride in the winter) with that I am going to focus the next few months on the swim. I did a 500 meter time trial and will start to white board my time trial results. the goal here is to do a timed event once every two weeks to see how the results are improving hopefully. With the Beaver freezer coming in April I will do them around those distances.
Swim: 500 yards 20 lengths (10 laps) in a 25 yard pool
Bike: 12 miles (bike map) Mostly flat, some hills, two out and back sections.
Run: 3.1 miles (run map) Mostly flat and fast course.
so with these short distance I can still trail most of the week for distance and use this as a hard workout in conjunction with my weekly KMA with Kyle Will
the pool I swim in is meters so i will go a bit longer when I do it...lets see:
so the other day I did 500 meters and did it in 12 minutes flat, not fast and granted I am not really a swimmer by nature but i endure prior to the bike and run.
last time i did the beaver freezer i came in third in my division with these times:
|Drew Holmes||Bend, OR||178||M35-39||1:12:30||00:10:19 (2:03.8)||00:01:16||00:34:36 (20.8)||00:01:35||00:24:44 (7:58.7)|
swim was ok at 10:19, both transitions were pretty fast and the bike average at 20 mph was ok but can be improved on and the run at 24 minutes for a 5k was respectable.
goal is to move up a place this year. I went from 4th in 2006 to 3rd in 2007 so going for 1st or second. The key will be to make Utrek enter the mountain bike division :)
so off to enjoy the weekend and maybe even get in a hike up the cindercone and ski it???
