Base Training...

GOOD NEWS!!!

Mrs. Clot Buster is BACK!!! She is done with her PT and she can run until she feels some discomfort in the knee. Of course she needs to continue doing some maintenance exercises but nothing she could not do. I am very excited about that because for 10+ years now she is been my running partner. Of course we have a new member of the gang and all of running is a thing of beauty.

Next up cycling as a family will be next. We have a trailer for Junior and I am looking forward to the opportunity to get him in there and come out with us. I worry silly about him without a helmet so until then I will leave the trailer parked. It just not make sense to me to have me ride with a helmet and not have any protection for him while sitting there. I take any suggestions that you have for infant bike helmets... of course if they have polka-dots the better.
In the mean time, Junior has visited the pool a couple of times and he seems to grow in his enjoyment of the water. We can see a little more reaction everytime that we go. Soon enough he will be splashing around like it is his business...
This is the time of the year where my legs are fatigued. Lots of base miles as I try to get in the best shape possible with the time that I have available these days. I am pleased to be able to keep up with the high intensity and watch my legs gets stronger. I am not in any kind of riding shape yet but I am working on that any chance that I get. My swimming is probably the one event getting the least amount of attention as I went from swimming two times per week to only once. But one thing is for sure I try to make that one time a quality one with plenty of flavor! Love that the warm weather is finally upon us. Time for grilling, growing the garden, and be outside as much as I can. Just can't seem to get enough of the fresh air. I guess that working in an office building in a cubicle is not exactly for me but I am not sure I am brave enough to look into anything else right now.

I am sure by now you have heard of Steve Larsen's passing... what a sad, sad, news... I wish that I could have met him as I somehow identified with his style of racing. Don't ask me why or how but I always admired him. Hard to believe that he somehow was able to manage everything he had on his plate and continued to be the ace that he was. As a father now, I can only begin to imagine what his family is going through. Here is wishing them ALL THE BEST through this terrible time. Just makes you realize how short life can really be and how every day needs to be lived to the max regardless of what you are doing on a given day.

Thanks for reading,

The Clot Buster
