Took a break from blogging here, call it laziness or whatever.
Last weekend raced the sooke to sambrio road race. 80km challenging course but it suited my climbing strengths. Felt good and strong the whole ride and finished in the front group. Ran 30 minutes off the bike throughout sooke getting chased by a boxer, not so fun.
Sunday took the day off and hung out with marty. We watched parts of the pro crit at bastion square and saw XMen 3 later that night.
Monday - took the 9 ferry and rode back home. Went up to ubc for a swim and then did a run of 10 min WU, 6xstrides, 20 min steady and 10 CD.
Tuesday - Swam in the Morning, then it was my GRADUATION. The last detail to end a long 6 years at UBC. Felt good to shake hands and get my diploma. My parents and sister were there to see me and it made me proud to have them there. We had a faculty lunch on granville island and went out downtown that night. I rode the tuesday nighter as well. As per usual got blown out in the sprint. Tried a breakaway but it didn't materialize.
Wednesday - Went with my family over to sydney to do some sailing. Unfortunately there wasn't any wind. We motored over to salt spring and stayed the night.
Thursday - Double Run day . First run on salt spring was solid. A lot of good hills there to work on so i did 10 min WU, stretch, 15 min steady, 4mins hard, 12xhills (45s) with 1:30 recovery. 10 min CD. Second run was an easy 40 mins in sydney along Lands End road. Again no wind so we had to motor back to Sydney
Fri - Got up early with Var and swam at the Commonwealth pool. Main set of 6x200 on 3mins averaging 2:45. Felt good. Did about 3km distance. Ran just before dinner of 15min WU, 15 min steady, 4x3min race pace with 2min recovery, 10 min CD.
Sat - Come back over to Vancouver with Mum and DAd and went to pick up my new BIKE!!! It had finally arrived. Rode out to Horshshoe Bay and back , WOW I like it. Alot of response and the power transfer feels amazing!! Partied hard saturday night as sort of a going away birthday bash.
