It's HOT!

Got back to San Diego yesterday and immediately had to take off my sweat shirt. It was definitely in the 80s! Went straight to work from the airport then to the gym after work. Worked the CORE hard. This morning got up at 4:30 and ran 8 miles in shorts and t-shirt. At lunch met with the lunch time bike group and did the high intensity traffic light sprint in heavy traffic ride they do every day. We also went out to Lake Mirmar and rode a wide bike path around the lake. Pretty nice, got us out of traffic but had to dodge runners, joggers, and roller bladers. The weather is amazing! Today felt like a hot day in July. 1 1/2 hours and I was drenched in sweat. It was a good ride with a lot of time spent at LT. I felt really strong and led on climbs. Other news today - it looks like we will be extended a month, which means I'll be here until May. I could think of worse places to spend the winter... Omaha comes to mind. I'll just be living a very simple life over the next few months; work, train, eat sleep. The cool thing is everything I need is within walking distance. Work is across the street, the gym is two blocks away, the grocery store is 3 blocks away, a bike shop is two blocks, and a book store one block. What more does one need?

Run: 8 miles 1 hr 4 min
Bike: 25 miles 1 hr 32 min


  1. You're all set pal! Seems like the life of Reilly over there.. ;)

  2. What more does one need.... a casino, a movie theater, etc....

    Glad to see you're going to go for the Leadman after all... but where is your project plan?!

    Keep up the hard work, we're all cheering for you here in Colorado Springs.

  3. Actually I'm working on a project plan. Gonna put it up in MS Project. Should be good practice.

  4. We're cheering for you under a foot of snow here in Ohio too!

  5. It is getting warm here too. I ran in shorts and t-shirt at lunch on Peterson today. About 60.

  6. Hey! I just found out about your blog and your decision to "go for it". We really miss riding with you and are bummed to find out you are gone until May (we'll have to get your wife out for dinner), but we'll certainly try to motivate you from afar :)
