Tucson Training Camp 2010

Day 1 is in the books.

The morning started with a shockingly cold drive to the pool. An interesting outdoor, but covered, and warm, situation going on there. Thats me.
A solid swim was followed up with a run in and around the park/golf course/dog obedience school/Zoo/Colorado Rockies practice facility. Yes. Truly a one stop shop.

Charisa and I took a little tour of the town to visit the local co-op health food store (think whole foods without departing with your "whole paycheck".

After some lunch and some rest it was onto the bikes. We rode to the top of this hill a few times, got some strange looks from people wondering just how many times these idiots would go up and down. But it was a good time. Once the hill repeats were done it was time to head home and cook some of the grub we picked up at the hippy-op.

I must admit. Not having to squeeze 4hrs of training in between 8hrs of office time, while not making the "training" any easier, sure makes the day much less stressful and manageable.


  1. Great training day...I wish I could have that time for myself!

    Enjoy the stay!

    Cheers from Hong Kong!

  2. Agreed, this "real" work thing makes things so much more challenging....grr!!
    Train on!


  3. I'm pretty sure I know what park you are talking about.

  4. Keep posting, it's my turned to be entertained. I learned a name for people like us who are into the whole health food store thing. We're called yippees (a hybrid of a yuppie and a hippy).

  5. I love the photo of you two with your new bikes. You pros!

  6. I agree with ADC - you guys look so fancy and "pro-y."

  7. I like the picture of you two for a different reason... you can see who the real BAMF is (the one wearing shorts)!
