Today was… Rushed. Legs are way tight. Need to break up the lactate. Had a death by massage experience in Thursday. Thanks Sara, but holy hell – 90 minutes of just unbelievable pain. And I should sleep more. Dry land conditioning, once I hauled over (28 minutes from Tuscany to Varsity on my Trek hybrid) was sweet. Here’s what we did
3 rounds of
60″ low walk
60″ jog
60″ dry skate
60″ jog
60″ skate jumps
60″ jog
60″ x-over uphill
3′ Rest
Thanks Kits! And Erin, you were great too. Good PIC. Can’t wait for ice! Should get on inlines tomorrow. Or rest? Hmm.. I still gotta fit day 3 – week 2 in…
Thanks for reading!

To have an offseason, I guess you first need an “In-Season”.  Well, I got 2 races in on my first week on blades in March. I will be much better this coming ice season. I feel so strong. But it’s not like I had anything to really compare against… I played some hockey, some real high level shit a few years ago  and I’m in much better conditioning now. I’m excited to have my new Bonts (which are my inline semi-race boots) as my ice boots now too.  This is because they’re far more comfy than the Maples I’m in. If I need to I’ll go and buy the right chassis too. There’s such  difference.

Well, that was a tangent.

I started this post thinking about all the crazy work I’ve put into something I really have no idea how I’ll compare at. There’s so much work to do and I admire all the athletes that have trained most of their lives for the same dream I am chasing. Not to make a mockery of the training at all, but I truly believe that I will be able to contend. Surround yourself with awesome. Fail. Fail again. And again. Learn. Train hard. Skate fast. This is what I’m set on doing. Give me a few years. See what’s up then. This is my story.
