Training in Arizona has been going well. I'm building better training habits and taking advantage of the great weather and abundance of climbing. This drive out was a huge success. Seeing the country was one of the coolest things I have experienced. I felt like every cross country road trip movie had it spot on. Plus it seemed like each song on the radio was the soundtrack to my journey. Really killer stuff. I left Waterford Michigan, drove to Oklahoma City, then to Albuquerque and finally ending in Sierra Vista Az. Sierra Vista is a pretty chill town. It's a military town so there really isn't a ton going on. Thats great for training. Nothing to do but train and eat tacos. A little update on the weeks to come. The next race is True Grit 100 in Utah. It'll be my second 100 miler and I am more optimistic about this one than Lumberjack 100. Lumberjack was fun, but I bonked hard. I didn't take my nutrition seriously and committed to the wrong fuel source. This time I have more miles and nutrition experience under my belt. It's been fun and I look forward to the rest of the time here.
Post VO2 Max workout. I was really trashed.
A little hike to a waterfall with Jason. Unreal views.
