GARMIN WTF?

After spending a bunch of time over the weekend going through the trouble shooting guide Garmin provides on the customer support page, I am now in an even worse spot. Now I can’t get any connection between the GPS and my computer. At least before my 910XT was communicating with the computer and hanging, now […]

Garmin Frustrations

I haven’t been able to upload my fitness activities from my Garmin 910XT in several months. My last activity that made it through wasn’t even a proper run, it was my timer event for when my brother was running a half marathon, so that I would be ready and waiting for Photo opportunities when he […]

Ironman 70.3

I have finally finished my mini documentary on my training and entry into an Ironman 70.3 race.

2 years in the making, this is the most time consuming, yet rewarding thing I have probably done in life so far. Training was long, hard, and exhausting… but I am glad to have finished the race […]

Ironman

What a day. Here I sit feeling the after effects of a long race, sore muscles and really sorehip and knee joints. The whole race has become a blur of a memory so I want to write down as much as I can before the memory fades away. You can read more on my fitness […]

Nothing left to do but race

Ironman 70.3 is only a few days away and there is no more training left to do. My body can’t possibly get any more prepared for this years “A” race than it is right now. All I have left to do is figure out the logistics of race day, mentally prep, and get lots of […]

Bridge too far

I went out for an early morning run in the fog the other day. Here’s a fun little video I made because i know my brother loves bridges.

Getting back into the groove

Now that summer weather has finally shown up, I am finding it increasingly difficult to stay on top of my training. Changes at work have left me feeling drained and I don’t seem to have the focus I need to stay where I want in terms of training volume. Ironman 70.3 is at the end […]

Duathlon 2013

Another race is in the bag…and I feel pretty bagged!

I beat my time from last year by 4 minutes with a finish of 2:30:59 based on my Garmin timing. Some how my timing chip was not entered into the system, I mean I didn’t even get a DNF on the online rankings page. I […]

Great day for a Race

Wow you couldn’t ask for better weather to run a half marathon today. We just finished 3-4 days of steady rain, and the forecast says that it is going to pour rain again for 3-4 days this week. So the race managed to sit right in the middle. I was a little worried at fist […]

Destroyed my legs

I just got back from my first long bike ride with my brother, and he made me feel like such a noob. My legs are completely depleted now. 42 km in 88 minutes for an average of 28.8 kph is not terrible for a first big ride of the season. The huge hill near the […]
