I am down here in Campeche Mexico, rigging for Bandaloop, we are about to perform on a 400 year old Cathedral. As it is the crucial month before nordic racing, I brought my roller skiing gear with me. Happily the Marecon, a 5k paved bike path along the ocean has been perfect and I have been training hard...yes I get weird looks, not the kind of thing seen before in these parts I am sure. Yesterday I clipped my carbon pale with my wheel and broke it. Just finished my first time fiberglass repair, and I think it will hold for another session tomorrow. I will try to get a photo of skating like a maniac, beneath the palm trees, next to the gulf of Mexico...Loving Mexico, but its dumping at Donner now...eager to hit the tracks! Bring on Winter!

Knocked 6 minutes off my old time swimming 3 miles across Pensacola Bay, although I had the outgoing tide to help. Starting to miss the mountains and trying to get amped up for xc skiing this season, waiting for the big storm dump before heading back west.

8 miles yesterday while the bird was cooking. Need to get out today and run between the raindrops. Good weather is coming Sunday, I hope. Then I'll really compensate for the indulgences of the holiday.

Cool one this week!
Today I started running (in five fingers) at the hidden valley trailhead south of moab. Up 1200'(?) and over a few miles where it joins the Moab rim trail up and down for a few miles, then a plunge similar to the initial climb, taking me down to the trailhead @ Kane creek, where I had stashed a mtn bike. Two miles on pavement and I joined the pipe dream mtb trail back to my car. 13.3 miles total, About half running and half on bike, some of which was technical enough for a low speed wipe out; my right boy-tit hurts! Stops to eat and take pictures 2.5 hrs & change.
Good day! I wonder if Larry still has some leftovers from yesterday...

I did a similar event like this last Dcember,0nly all on foot, and with an added five miles complete with highball death potential, because I got lost . So I guess this is almost an annual event. It also marks 12 continuos months of at least monthly adventures of this level and duration, including almost twenty half marathons, 30+ and 40+ mile bike rides etc. I'll have to devise a more ambitious monthly aerobic goal for 2013!

Probably drank about a litter agua & diluted Gatorade . Feel a little dry now actually.

Good job Bro Jay. How much water do you {carry, consume}?

Today we did 8.46, mostly fireroads, I drank 34 oz. (up from 17, straight water no additives) and felt very markedly better. Still I lost 4 lbs. water weight.

Jay....you'll be ready for he Moab trail marathon next year...I think it follows some of the same area you covered. I'm lusting on the half but I don't think this ole bod can really get whipped in shape for it. Never hurts to dream.....

I might just plan for that Susan. Lets do it. If I can do it so can you!
Edit: what a cool looking course, I'm in! We have a whole year to train! A funny thing, my friends and I ate @ Milt's after our Moab brand mtn bike ride and it was the same day as the trail marathon, man those trailrunners are a hungry bunch!

Z, I carried a1.5 litter camelback and had a bike bottle of 50/ 50 water Gatorade waiting for me on the bike . The high today was only 57 and I was largely in shade.

Back for a return sojourn with the Fam on phu quoc -an vietnamese island off the coast of cambodia-we are living the louche life in a decrepit bungalow on the far end of a deserted 4km long beach -up with the sun and a barefoot jog at tideline to the end and back -followed by a swim with my better half who is recovering from a bad pelvic break sustained in a bike race last summer -not exactly breaking training for the coming touring season -but it'll do.
now hanging with the frenchies whose idea of aerobic activity is chuffing a bunch of galloises over coffee....

Yep Jay, it's a doer if ever I could. We had a friend do the full marathon. She was staying in the same place as us but had to leave before you got a chance to meet her. She's 50 and in phenomenal shape....had just done a road marathon 3 weeks prior. Said the Moab Trail marathon was the best one ever. After mile 14 she said it was mainly an obstacle course and she said it was fun...but really grueling. She did say a lot of sand running, which I despise in both biking and running but you're probably getting used to it.
I really want to shoot for the half. I've a long ways to go...but heck...I'll shoot for it and if it doesn't work out I can do the 5k.
Ok. Talked myself into it!

Those fifty year old kids are something. Aren't they?
So that's the plan for next year Susan, at least the half. Assuming I'm still in the area or can travel back. It would be my forty ninth marathon. Maybe I should do an easier one first and have it be my fiftieth. It would be a really cool fiftieth.

Okay one more check in; today's run was the portal / poison spider trail with a little extra of the golden spike thrown in because I'm a klutz. Should have been 12.9 miles ended up being a hair over 14. On to the rec center to colapse in the pool & shower.

Edit; and now off to the brewery!

Sheeeeet Jay, I'm barely in the double digits and they were all awhile ago! So, I got a new GPS watch/heart rate monitor (love my toys)...unfortunately, it's soooo damn honest....
today's run was a street run down through Capitola, 5.39 miles (and I always thought it closer to 6) and an average pace of 9:12, wow much slower than I thought...but I always stop for a bit in Capitola to watch the waves so I guess it takes that into consideration.

Yep, that Moab TRail Marathon/Half seems like a really fun endeavor, or heart attack alley. We shall see!

I off to PA for a few days for my dad's 90th birthday. I probably won't be running, but if snow is good we ski all over town. Easier than driving. It'll be fun to use my GPS for that.

Oh boy...that's a knarly piece of business. Watch those signs! They mean what they say.

Keep running, climbing, biking, LIVING LARGE!

my dad's 90th birthday.


Nothing like having good genes! My Parents hit their 65th wedding anniversary last week and we had a good time in Connecticut.

I'm not doing so great. I trained hard for the Marathon that wasn't (New York) a month ago and I think I should feel like Superman.

But I'm not. I ran 18 miles in 5 days and took today off. Kind of bumping along the bottom. Two months ago, I would've laid down the 18 on a Saturday in a little over 3 hours.
