Well the time has come again for another blog, however, instead of writing this from my normal locale which is upstairs at the ZAP office right in front of Frank and behind Nick (in a spot that I hi-jacked from Jess) I am sitting in my hotel room in sunshiney Tallahassee, FL, which is pretty tubular.
This is my second experience with training in Tallahassee and I must say it is one of the greatest pleasures of the ZAP Fitness Elite Athlete training agenda. We arrived here a couple weeks ago and, well despite some dreary days at the start (including a day with Biblical flooding that drown my poor Sebring out for a couple days), the weather has been perfect, which is certainly a welcome relief from my typical holiday training which takes place in Michgain (snow,snow, snow,snow) and then Seattle (rain, rain, rain, rain). So, we have all been able to get settled in and have been focused on some high mileage intense base workouts heading into our track seasons which have, for me personally, gone strikingly better than my workouts last year at this time.
It is a simple life that we live here and the typical day generally goes something like this:
- 7:45 - Wake up eat a Power Bar
- 8:15 - Leave for the run
- 12:00 - Lunch
- 3:00 - Nap
- 4:30 - Run again
- 6:30 - Dinner
- 7:30 - 11pm - Play Guitar Hero
and on top of all that:
- 7:45 am - 11:00pm - Listen to Jankowski talk about being a Champion
So, like i said... simple. I don't think we have to worry much about anyone confusing the life of a long distance runner with that of a rock star, but we all love what we do and wouldn't have it any other way.
