An easy ride today after a week of being sick.

Last Tuesday I ran with the Jack Quinn's running club. The next morning, I woke up with a cold. Headache and sinus congestion. After a couple of days, I thought I was over it, I wasn't even close. The cold then proceeded to congest my lungs. When I would cough I would be coughing up little chunks of goop and I would feel a little gurgling as well.

Needless to say, my training was put on hold. For any of you that have a had a similar experience, I'm sure you understand how I felt. As… Continue

A great swim this morning

After being sick last week, I feel like I'm finally getting back on track. Swam on Wednesday morning, ran on the treadmill Thursday night and swam this morning. I've got a long run planned for tomorrow. After that, I should be back in the swing of things.

I'm glad because I hate being sick.

It never fails though, I get into a good training groove and maintain a good schedule for a certain amount of time and then I boost up my training or change something and BAM! I get… Continue

After last weeks "Great Week of Training" I caught a cold

I guess I pushed it a little too hard last week because I ended up being sick with a cold on Saturday, Sunday and took Monday off from work. Tuesday morning, I started to feel better so I ran with the Jack Quinn's running club and then this morning I was back in the pool with the Colorado Springs Swim Team masters group. Still have a bit of a sinus headache but for the most part I'm back to normal.

So if all goes well, the rest of the week will look like this.

Tonight: Ride… Continue

A great week of training so far

This has been a good week so far. I ran a 10 mile long run on Sunday, Monday I swam with the Colorado Springs Swim team masters group, Tuesday I ran 5 miles downtown, Wednesday I had plenty of work to do so I could only get in a ride on the trainer in my basement. Today, Thursday, I've a got 6 mile run planned. Tomorrow it's back to the pool for another swim workout. Then on Saturday I'd like to get a long ride in and Sunday another long run, 11 miles planned.

A full week for sure but… Continue

First Jack Quinns run with my daughter

Tonight, my daughter and I ran the Jack Quinn's running club run for the first time. It was a dream come true for me. I'm sure that sounds pretty weird but running with my kids and sharing the enjoyment that I get out of it with them is and has been a dream of mine. I hope that they can grow up loving running like I do but if they don't it's okay. I just want to give them a doorway to lifelong fitness.

The run tonight was really nice. We just took it slow and talked about all… Continue
