I'm testing out a new blog. I hope to post here frequently in my next two weeks leading into Kona (and also thereafter).
Speaking of which, the race is two weeks from tomorrow! I'm nursing a head cold at the moment, but that should hopefully be gone before boarding the plane next Saturday. I had a really solid build (until getting this cold!). I'll post more on my training plan that I did for this years race soon. Last week, my kids weren't sleeping well, and I had too much going on, which meant I wasn't sleeping well and I caught this cold. I was starting to taper anyway, so the first few days of the cold, I totally rested, but at the same time, I was also to begin swimming. So after a few days rest, I got my ass to the pool. I plan on swimming today again, which will make 4 times this week!
As my wife mentioned; "You knew you'd get sick at least once! Better now than race week."
Thanks for reading and get outside this weekend, the trees here in New England are about to burst with color.
