Blowing the dust off

It's been some time since I've updated this.

But life is always moving and always going forward, even if this blog isn't (which is cool.)

Training and races - I decided to scrub the rest of the races in the near future. So no Hundred in the Hood for me, my first 100 mile dreams will have to be on hold until 2010.

However, I am at the beginning of a new training plan that I designed, based mostly on Rob Shaul's Hybrid Program and design at Mountain Athlete. I won't disclose too much now since it's in the early stages and I'm on week 3 at the moment, but here's the skinny:

The program is setup using periodization. Currently, I'm on the beginning part, which is Strength Focused. When this period is over, I'll shift to the next one (to be disclosed later).

The week is setup as:

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays - WOD
Tuesdays & Thursdays - Sport-Specific WOD
Saturdays - Long Run
Sundays - Rest

As I said, I'll go into more specifics later on.

Currently, everything is being documented on paper (yeah, the old fashion way). Seems that I respond better if the training log is in my face. I'll eventually copy the information here for sharing purposes.
