I have been chatting on Facebook with Josef Ajram, a Spanish endurance athlete who did Ultraman last year and will be competing this year. He is a pretty studly athlete and has put together a few cool little promo videos from last year’s Ultraman I thought I would share. I can feel the heat and pain coming through the computer, but these are helping me get psyched up….
All the pain and stiffness from my 40 mile run have evaporated and I’m back to work. Put in a solid 5200 yd swim workout yesterday followed by a one hour spin ride. This morning I hit the bike pretty hard, tackling a few of the hard climbs in my beloved Santa Monica Mountain backyard playground — Piuma, Stunt and Saddle Peak. Feeling great and ready for the last hard push. Committing to focusing more on my nutrition as well. No more late night potato chip feasts! Tomorrow — a 2 hr morning swim workout and a 1 hr evening swim workout. Time to really get ready for that 10K swim.
