Thursday December 27, 2007 R & R & Work!

Another Cold day on the Desert. This morning below freezing in the outlying areas around Scottsdale. Thank God it will warm up to high 50's later and then get back into the high 60's later this week. No fun riding out in the cold. Friday will be day # 22 of 30 days for Training Camp 2008.
After work today I get visit with my son Billy and then watch the Holiday Bowl from San Diego. At 6 PM ASU 10-2 on the season will play Texas 9-3. Should be a great game!
I'm guessing our Brutal Summer Heat is hiding some where in Australia. If we are lucky we will get back to 70 plus F in February?
Til then I guess get used to the COLD! UGH!

Merry Christmas to All!

Xmas day on the desert and time to go for a ride. Day # 21 of my 2008 Training Camp.

Just nine more days to go! Then count down to first race February 23 & 24.

Almost time to get back to the Pool.

Maybe this week?

It's hard to believe we hit 67 degrees F yesterday for XMas Eve. Other than Southern Florida most of the US is in a deep Freeze.

A bit windy & cool today but an hour on the bike then big Suns VS Lakers Game at 3PM from the Staples Center.
A Very Merry Christmas to All!

Tomorrow Friday will be Day # 18 of 2008 Training Camp.

Thank God I live on the Desert! What is cold and wet to me is a joke in the rest of the US for Winter weather! Yesterday it was about 65 F in the PM. Training Camp goes well.
My Coach Deann B. of is slowly preparing me for the major of events of 2008. My new Trek Madonne rides like a dream. Thank You Landis Cyclery and Trek!
I just put a new Fizik Carbon saddle on and what a comfort difference!
I guess you can wear out a saddle? So far my time on the Bike and Gym have been most productive. Last year at this time I was recovering from chest surgery and it is nice to be ahead of the game. New Years Eve Team Arizona will be helping out at the Midnight Madness event. Then January 13 th I will escort probably the lead Wheel Chair Athlete in the PF Changs Rock & Roll Marathon. End of February should be first local races on the Bike. Almost time to get back in the Pool and prepare for next summers Swim Events.
Hope you all are Healthy & Happy this Holiday Season?
