So the year is half over and what do I have to show for it, training and blogwise?
Training? I'm not really training for anything, so it's been hit or miss for a while. I worked on adding some barefooting to my run workouts, got a new saddle (Adamo Typhoon) which increased my cycling pleasure immeasurably, and swam only in my in-laws' pool (cold) or Lake Michigan (colder). The results:
- Running: 58 outings for a total of 302 miles over 46 hours
- Cycling: 40 outings for a total of 325 miles over 22 hours
Gear? Not a bad half year at all. No controversial products like the Thermajock, but plenty of good stuff nonetheless. I'm thinking of starting a Gear of the Year Award maybe, might be a fun way to finish off the year. Right now the front-runner is the Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover, but who knows what is coming down the pike the rest of this year!
There were more, in the form of book and hydration reviews, and more usual blather about things that interest me.
Laima had a great start to her blog, Women's Endurance Gear - thanks to all of you who have followed her as well. She started running seriously again, has earned the nickname Super Sexy Mama (well-deserved), and is planning big things.
Apart from some ankle/heel issues in the Spring, I've had a good six months in 2011. More Midwest Multisport Life adventures to come the rest of the year. Thanks for tuning in, following, commenting, and I'll see you tomorrow, same channel, same place.
