The Day after the Storm!!!

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

So yesterday we got hammered in both runs and today we had the swim and long bike. Here in Subic most of us do our ride in the a rode to oceans adventure wich is a 90 minutes loop and you can hit the 7-eleven often, on a 90 +, degrees day its comes handy.
this means that you get to see all of us going back and forward the entire ride, the first time around i saw dumpster zach looking very good, then good, then not so good and gone. I made it back about 30 minutes before him, he arrived pale and once again he hit the floor while mumbling, i gave him my coke and took some pics and a video and here it is.

Hibernation Day !!!!

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

well today i’ve been hibernating pretty much the whole day(its our day off), this past training block we had a kenyan day ( you can figure it out why is call kenyan day) time trial day with zach off the front on the airport rode, brick day, i’m going to next olympic games day with Reinaldo and LC on the same lane doing a Short course swim set (hard and short rest), a very long and hot ride day and a marathon running day. doc said yesterday that we had off today and I induced myself in a coma and slept as much as i could, woke up went to the supermarket and heard that Erika had slept like 16 hrs wow. Mamma Huerta sent me my playstation 2 from home so now we can watch some DVDs and play some games with the boys. I also made a quick trip to Zach’s room witch its smells weird, a combination in between New Jersey and Flint Michigan and is the only room that monkeys don’t go in to try to steal food (hhmm wonder why). Tomorrow back to the training routine for the next block of training let you know how that one goes soon.

ciao

Dinner is getting better!!!

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Well i arrived to Subic like most of the squad, this time around we are staying in aparments instead of the grand season hotel like last time around. the good thing about this is that we have a kitchen and that we are a bit closer to the pool, melvin and the crew did an excellent job on setting us up here thanks. im sharing my aparment with k-dog williams and mr sir james. Every night one of us cooks dinner (or experiments) for all three of us and we finally got the rice right tonight ;)

anyways im happy to be back in subic and finally met most of the squad members ill be here until the end of april for a good block of training.

ciao untill the next one
