Wow, where has the last month gone?
Thankfully, I've been doing a lot more training than blogging about it this year, thanks to the Silicon Valley Triathlon Club.
Over the last two weeks alone, I've been on a 45 mile bike ride (including a 1400 foot climb up Old La Honda Road), done a 12-mile run, an 11-mile run and then an Olympic-distance brick (almost) of 25 mile ride/5 mile run. And I'm feeling good about it, too.
My next event is the Woodside Kings Mountain half marathon on Feb 28 which should be a challenge considering there's 1500 feet of climbing up the hill to get to the half-way point of the race.
While a year ago I'd have denied my ability to do a half marathon on such short notice (I only signed up a ten days ago), let alone one with that much climbing, I'm already in good enough shape and running far enough on my long runs to easily complete this.
Besides, I'll be having surgery on my calf just five days later. But that's another post entirely...
