Rhian and I had been debating going skiing to vermont for a couple of days. I was off work starting the 27 and so was she. Now it was matter of getting the logistics correct. We finally decided to go up to killington for 2 days.
The first days was cold and cloudy. The top of the mountain was completely covered with low clouds. We skied mostly on snowdon it has some good blue runs going down.
The next day it was great weather. The sun was out. You could see to the horizon. We did the main face of killington skiing most of the day till we had to drive back home.
I told myself I would continue with my planned workouts throughout the holidays. I think that continued for about 3 days and then skipped a couple. Why of Why. I was doing good. I was getting some speed, some endurance. And now we have 2 days of this eating festival.
So in lieu of my mediocre vdot test decided to go have some kati rolls and beer. Since my last time in the city with the tri-team I figured out the blind tiger ale house is about 2 blocks from the kati roll place in the village. Now that was a combo waiting to happen beer followed by kati rolls and then repeat. Rhian had the day off so she was able to go into the city early. I on the other hand was still dealing with a major office move and all its related stuff. I barely managed to escape the office by 6:00 . Called azfar and figured he would be game for good un-healthy food. Met him in GCT. And went down to the village.
If you haven’t experienced the blind tiger ale house. You should. Recommended by one of the biggest micro-beer aficionados I know. It lives upto the hype. Some of the most difficult to find brews are found in the small bar of the village. After a glass each we all decided to go down to have kati rolls. Now if you haven’t experienced this , kati rolls are thin fried bread wrap which can have your choice filling (usually minced meat) . Yes I know I should be on a diet for triathlons but seriously how BORING! . I managed to have 4 of these wonderfully un-healthy wrap (And yes I did do my training justice in that meal) . After that followed by some gelato now that I would have to say is a nyc meal. multi-cultural , ethnic and still a good dam un-healthy combination on all counts! .
I laughed so hard when a teammate sent me this video. This reminds me of so many conversations with friends, family , co-worked. It is the same quizzical look I get every time when I explain what I do. And I care to dispute the sex portion.
I am an Ironman
Started my run focus block this week. Or atleast that is what I keep telling myself.
Now I have to run 4 days/ week. With 1 day being repeats of 100, 200, 400 meters to build that top end speed. The goal run my 5k in sub 20.
