So, the new year is here! For Christmas I got P90X. I have been doing it for about three weeks and have noticed a difference already. It is a tough program. I realized last year when I did the Kennebunk Olympic race that I need more leg strength if I am ever going to get to the 1/2 Iron distance. P90X has a couple great leg workouts. The Yoga routines have helped my flexability also.
We just ordered a fluid bike trainer. We got pretty much the cheapest fluid trainer out there. It is a Kurt Kinetic. It has a lifetime warrentee so it should last us a while.
I have been hitting the gym at lunch 3 days a week to get in 5K 3 times a week. I have a 5 K in a couple of weeks. It is named the Polar Bear. Gotta love winter in Maine. Last year it was in the 30's so it was not too bad.
I just posted my planned races for 2010 in the column to the right. I put the Pumpkinman 1/2 Iron on my list again this year. Last year I did not make it. This year I will.
Of the 8 events planned, it looks like Crystal may be doing 5 of them with me include the Blackfly. That will be her longest event to date. .25, 21 and then 5. Strange distances, but it will work into my schedule perfectly!
