It’s been a super busy last couple weeks. My plan with school this year is to take a larger load now in the fall semester, so that I can take an easier load this winter when I will be traveling a lot. That means if I’m not working out there is a pretty good chance you can find me in the library. As I get closer to finishing my degree I get more higher level business classes. Right now I’m taking three business classes and meteorology.
Training has been going great! I did have a little sickness for a week, but I’m healthy now. My coach believes if your sick for a week you need to take a week to work back into hard training and before you can start giving it a 100% in intervals. I just finished that ease back into it week. I’m really excited for this coming week, I think I will get to do intervals almost everyday. It’s that time of year where we get to push our speed. I put the time in this summer and did lots of easy hours so now I get to put that base to use and test my limits.
The weather here in Anchorage has been just nuts. It seems like every other day we have wind advisory alerts. A couple of days they measured wind gusts up over 130 mph. It’s been raining lots too. I’m just glad I’m busy doing other things so it doesn’t bother me much to have this weather now. It makes me feel tough training in it though, sometimes I feel like I could be in the Rocky movie.
When on the road it is important to be seen. APU just got some bright new rain jackets, just in time.
