The past couple of weeks I’ve had more free time than usual, and my goal was to use that time to put some heavy yardage under my belt. Overall I guess it was a success, and I felt pretty good about myself. That is until I read Mark Robson’s blog (see below). I punished my body a bit and I feel pretty strong coming into the final six months of training.
Now, here’s what a real athlete does during Christmas. A while ago I found this guy, Mark Robson, through some English Channel swimming avenues, but he got my attention because he has a similar background as a triathlete and is training for a 2008 Channel attempt. We’ve been chatting back and forth behind the scenes for a little while, but I wanted to draw everyone’s attention to his blog. It’s very well put together, and he’s much better at being interesting. Check it out when you get a chance.
