Where does the time go? I swear I just posted a blog and then I realize that was about 10 days ago...And so it is, playing catch up a bit.
March is a "long" month for me. Although it may not end up to be a huge volume month for me, March will be the most focused as my workouts are becoming much more race specific. This means less "winging it" and fewer social workouts because I need to respect the schedule my coach has made for me :). The intensity is picking up and it's time to put the head down and get 'er done! (Which is what I did during my 5am trainer intervals and then solo track sesh after work today). March is also the long haul for me as I am usually spoiled with my school schedule full of holiday weeks and 3-day weekends. However, in March we have none! A FULL month of work. And a busy month at that with lots of meetings, evaluations, presentations and other school psychological things. So, time to put my head down and get to work on all fronts. My first big race of the season is April 2nd at Oceanside 70.3. I CANNOT wait! (Except for that whole getting-in-the-ocean part- which is a necessary evil at least once or twice before the real deal race day.)
Anyhow, the past week or so has been busy and fun....
I logged some good ride time with James and friends...and completed my longest brick run of the year

That's it for now! It's nearly bedtime (8:30!) in the Walsh house. As we are 4 weeks out from race it's time for "lockdown". Lockdown= no snacks after dinner and in bed by 8:30. It's easier to get in bed on time when there are no tasty snacks to be eaten anyhow!
