Update numero uno on the Road to London: What’s been happening with me since Rotterdam Marathon

By May 29, 2012News

I told myself I was going to be better at updating on my progress towards London. I’m a bit behind the 8-ball with that. You can catch up what I was up to the few weeks following Rotterdam by reading this report I wrote for the Mizuno Run Club newsletter.

Now to get you up to speed on what’s been happening the past few weeks:

I returned to Flagstaff, AZ to get the ball rolling again on training. I was undecided about where I should train leading into London. The altitude training I did here prior to my spring marathon(s) seemed to really help. So, I decided to come back here again.

The first few days were a bit of a struggle. Trying to get back into shape and adjust to the altitude all at the same time has been tough. But, I’m trying to be patient and take things day by day. Two weeks in now and I feel like I’m starting to come around nicely. Just in time for Rob “The Destroyer” Watson to arrive for a 3 week stint.

Last week I had a nice morning of training and coffee drinking with Craig Taylor and his group of triathletes from RTC-Guelph. They were in Sedona, AZ for an altitude training camp for the past three weeks. I took them to Buffalo Park for a run and Macy’s for coffee. Two of my favourite places in Flag. Best of luck to the entire crew this summer.
