THIS WEEK: I’ll be coming in for some of the workouts from Bolinas where we’re staying this week starting after Tuesday 8:45 A.M. group. There will be NO Wed weight training at Warren’s (see suggested workout below for Wed date; also we’ll have added XTrain/40 meter workout! I will be in all day Thursday for track workouts, working on Human Race, and helping with TL track meet during the late afternoon. NEW Dipsea “40 Meter X-Train repeats”...be ready for this new phase. I am doing usual Friday bike ride, but no workout on Saturday because we’re out at Bolinas through the weekend and Monday, Tuesday.
4/16/16: Sandy, Kathleen and I at “Bike Around The Buttes” 17.5 miler (Sandy’s first ride), Kathleen (40M then worked as an instructor at Diabetes Booth), Kees (100 miler)…very windy day: we all had to deal with 25-35 mph headwinds for good part of it. First time I had a sag wagon following right behind me after mile 80! The Buttes are smallest mountain range in California surrounded by miles of nut tree groves and rice farms. Our friends are rice farmers in Colusa; Sandy and I tied in an overnight visit with them. We plan to explore new areas through the many benefit rides around the state: “Travel with a purpose.” Then this summer riding around Tahoe in July and October.

4/22/16 SATURDAY….I suggest out/back to Cardiac, keep on the fireroads and clear parts of the trail to avoid poison oak…If you’re a low mileage runner I wouldn’t suggest running hill repeats or Dipsea more than twice per week: difficult to recover and maintain the program. You also still need to get in that 10-14 miler trail or road run for endurance base which gets you through a tough effort on Dipsea without fading.
