ARE YOU READY??

Time to

FIRE IT UP!
DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
JUMP START 2010!


Don't you agree??

Wanna hear what I'm planning?? Keeping reading......


In between stuffing my face with left over Christmas cookies and such,

January 1st, I'm doing an 11 mile run ( ok slog)
January 2nd I'm doing a pool swim but NOT JUST ANY POOL SWIM! NO SIRREE.

100 x 100

This is an event/organized swim that I am paying for because no way
in my sensible mind would I EVER do this on my own or even with a couple of
other unstable swimming latemate. The fact I had to PAY for this makes everything
justifiable. Besides the fact I will be consuming beer and nachos post swim with my friend/MIT lanemate Bob makes it all the more worth while. Yipppppeeeee!!!


I'm not done yet.



January 12th I start a 10 week spin class at The Training Room in Somerville MA. A sleek top of the line training facility in which the class will be instructed by Roz Puelo, a total kick ass cyclocross chicka and cycling guru. After the spin class we will also be doing a session of core strengthening.
I needed something different than the winter Computrainer classes I've been taking year after year and quite honestly, I'm looking forward to a fresh approach to getting my cycling mojo back in gear and NOT having to drag my bike around in the cold sometimes snowy conditions to set it up on a Computrainer. I have one at home and that's all I need. It's sitting there being VERY useful collecting dust at the moment.

So......
What are YOU doing?????

What are you going to be leaving on for the 100's?
I'll be hungover and sleeping in but I'll send out a good thought for you! :)

a controllable 1:40.
Hungover? I'm guessing you'll be out for an 18 miler to shake that hangover off. :-)

100X100? Yes, you have crossed the proverbial line of sanity into some other realm of consciousness that only mad hatters know. Still, awesome! Please let us know how you fare. Of course you are paying for it. I mean, what else would convince you to go out there and do this? As someone joining the IM community this summer, I can tell you that the cost of racing, or participating in some sick swim workout, should ensure that we all go out there and train our tails off.

Happy Training!

Oh sweet!!! I was going to do it this year...I obviously completely (and rather conveniently) forgot about that little plan. ;)

How did it go??
