1, 2009 - One week survived in Flag
|Me at the Grand Canyon
can't believe I've already been here in Flagstaff for over
a week. It took me about 8 days until I started feeling normal
in terms of my breathing and heart rate. It's still a challenge,
but I feel much better. I actually did my first track workout
last Saturday down in Sedona, which is around 5000ft (~1500m).
It's still tough training in Sedona, but since it's a bit
lower it allows me to keep my quality up in longer intervals.
Desmet, Richard Mosley, Dylan Wykes, Hilary - group
will head down there again tomorrow for 4x800m with 8mins
rest and try to run a little slower than 1500m race pace.
I'm actually really excited to start getting more into 1500m
training after putting in all the miles this winter!
|Dylan Wykes - Grand Canyon
than that, I took time out of my eat-sleep-train routine to
go to the Grand Canyon on Monday with fellow Canadian Dylan
Wykes. It was a spectacular sight to see, I definitely recommend
it to anyone coming out here. And to add to our eventful trip,
we got a flat tire on the way back - which was a bit scary
considering we were in the middle of the desert with nothing
|Dylan changing our flat.
we had a spare that Dylan and I (well
mostly Dylan) were able to change. It was amazing to us that
about a dozen cars sped past us without stopping, and eventually
the only person to stop was another foreigner from Germany!
Nice guy, but by then we were good to go!
