A lot of people ask me to explain training for an ultra. Luckily for me it’s pretty easy to explain. You run. Of course there is more than that but “you run” really tells it all. Much like any other sport training, it really helps to know what the goal is. Ultra running seems different. […]
Seriously though. How is it already August? It’s been a strange summer here in Wisconsin. A cool start, followed by rain. So much rain, it’s not even funny. Now all of a sudden it’s August and it somehow is just starting to feel like summer is here to me. It has been a busy last […]
This weekend was something else. A day later I still can’t put words together about how it feels to have accomplished it. I keep thinking back to the fist time I ever ran, or tried to is a more accurate description. I knew going into work Friday that the weekend was going to be tough. […]
It might be a little late (just a week) but it still applies. Training has been going well! I’ll just say ultra training is night and day different from training for Ironman. Watch the video to find out more!
This past Saturday marked the Big Swells swim. An event that involved all swimming but in lengths of 1.2 and 2.4 miles, either wetsuit or non-wetsuit. I choose to take on the 2.4 wetsuit division race. I had a few goals going into the race. One was to simply see how my swim training was […]
This Sunday June 18th marks two special occasions all in one day. First off, it’s a day to celebrate our fathers here in America! Second marks the first 70.3 or half Ironman race for me this year! I’m going to talk about the second occasion since my father already knows how much I care about […]
This week the weather is crazy amazing, like in the 60’s! March 8th and two days in a row in the 60’s plus the rest of the week in the 50’s to 60’s. You really couldn’t ask for better weather. Training has been going great and volume has been high. The first real brick workout […]
Welcome to 2016! I for one am thankful that 2015 is over. A lot has changed in 2016 and that’s because I learned a lot last year and a lot happened last year. Below is a quick recap of went I went over in the video, enjoy! Lake Mills kicked it all off. A cold, […]
Here in Wisconsin you can spend a good amount of time indoors biking on your trainer. This has never been my cup of tea. I’ve tried movies, playing PS4, tablet games, web surfing and so many other things. No matter what I try it always ends up being no fun. Now don’t get me wrong, […]
Here it is August already! That means the days are getting closer. Peak training hasn’t hit yet but volume sure getting higher. In this update I talk what it’s like to be exhausted, which I just happen to be during the video! I also talk about the future!
