It's already the middle of February...and there is the possibility of getting outdoors to ride (consistently) within the next month.  Notice I said "possibility"...not likely, but why not be optimistic right?  In an attempt to not disappear from the blog world I thought I'd get another post out there.

The schedule for the year is shaping up nicely with some early season races to knock the rust off.  A solid chunk of training time, and then some nice build ups before a big fun race.  I'll leave the details just as that...details, not super important.  What is important is that the fitness is growing.  In years past I think I've peaked far too early.  This year that won't be the case.  Taking a much lower intensity approach, although the volume isn't necessarily all that low.

I did knock out a 6 hour training day on Saturday.  3.5 hour ride, 1 hour brick run, 90 minute swim later that night.  6 hours in February on a Saturday?  Then follow it up with an 85 minute run on Sunday.  There is a method to the madness and I completely trust the process.  I've seen some growth already, and I'm excited to see where this continues.  The best part about it is that my body feels great.  Do I feel completely fresh?  No, but does any triathlete really feel "fresh"?

Our L3 Endurance athletes have been doing an awesome job as well putting in some consistent work over the winter months.  I'm excited for things to come for all of these athletes!!

It's been forever since I've written I figured the best way to get things going is to just dive right in.  2015 is shaping up to be an awesome year with some great opportunities!

I'm happy to continue my work as the captain of the Great Lakes region for Team Zoot.  This is my 5th year with Zoot, and they've been awesome to work with!  Such a great company, and their roots go way back to near the beginning of triathlon.  Gotta love that!

I'm also fortunate to continue my partnership with Ceepo this season.  This will be my 3rd year on a Ceepo and what an awesome bike.  I've had the luxury of racing the Viper in 2013, and the improved Viper in 2014.  For 2015 I'll also be racing the Viper...more details on that in the future.  I'm excited for some opportunities with Ceepo this year that are truly once in a lifetime opportunities.

On the racing scene I do have a tentative schedule figured out.  I'm slowly building into the season to hopefully peak at just the right time to turn some heads!  In the mean time I'll be in the pool staring at a black line, on the trainer going absolutely no where, and on the treadmill wondering what the heck the people are trying to accomplish at the gym.  Looking forward to a great year, and can't wait to get rolling.
