Desert Training 2013

I told a friend of mine the other day that my excuse for not writing a blog since January (yikes!) is that I've been busier and more tired than I've been in a long time. But being busy and tired is a good thing because it means that I'm back training and doing what I love to do!

I came out to Phoenix in early January with the intent of staying until I was back in shape and ready to race again. It's been an amazing few months - finishing off my rehab at Endurance Rehab and making the transition back to full time training with some awesome training partners. Not to mention training in the heat which I love! I still have some work to do to get back to where I want to be, but as long as each week is better than the previous week, I'll take it. On my long run today, I realized that this was my biggest run week since August of 2011. So yes, I'll take it. :)

My first race of the season will be the Leadman Tri in Tempe on April 14th - 2.5km swim, 111.5km bike, 11km run - and then I'll head back to San Diego. More to come in the next few weeks. Onwards and upwards 'til then!
