Todays Workout




Today was time to get down to business. I am 10 days out from the race and I always like to do some harder threshold and Vo2 max efforts to open my body up and push my threshold up a little more. 10 days out has always been a good time frame for my body to respond well and recover in plenty of time for the race. The workout started with a 2:30 bike ride with a couple 2 min Vo2 efforts and then 3 x 10 minutes at threshold effort. I got to test out my new Aeolus 6.5 wheel with the wireless 2.4 PowerTap hub. Watts were good and it was a great testing point for me and my new products. I felt good out there with the company of my brother Matt to keep me honest and motivated. The weather is warm, but I feel great in this temperature. The 3 weeks I spent here last month has definitely paid off. I followed up the bike with a 30 minute run at race pace. Overall the mornings workouts were very successful.
Later in the day we will go for a good swim in the ocean. The key to the swim will be a couple solid 800 meter efforts. I always look forward to swimming in the ocean so I know it will be a very enjoyable swim.

Hey Chris-
I was on the Trek website and saw that they are featuring you. Big time for sure. Anyway, great to read about all your success and great to hear that the training is going well. Hope you crank out a great effort on race day. By the way, I voted for you on your little poll regarding who will have the fastest bike split. If you do, it will lend some street cred to the House of Pain ride. Anyways, good luck and give them hell.

Chris,
I am glad johnny go fast hooked me up with this link. It is so great to have a world class athlete so close to home and so humble. Every time I have ridden with you, you have never been pretentious or shown any kind of attitude (you don’t know me as I am the typical weekend warrior and have only done a few HOP and Bakery rides that you were on). I have been waiting eagerly for next Saturday. My entire family is routing for you. I know you will come out of the swim strong and crush them on the bike. I just hope your GI system doesn’t go wonky again and you can transition well to the run. You are the best there is (both as an athlete and a person). Be fearless out there.

p.s. My best to your brother as well. I see he's traveling with you so I assume he's racing as well. I hope he smokes the course to his liking as well.
