Miami Nike Swim

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

So I’m back at home, after a very long trip from china and still jet lag and tired from the trip I’m back into training mode. I did a few swimming sessions with my swim club here and today I swam the Miami Nike 5km swim, the conditions were a bit rough very windy and strong current ?!?!?! sounds familiar ??? china anyone anyone ?!?!?!? anyways i jumped in the men Open wave, this event had about 600 swimmers most of them from south florida clubs and a few triathletes, some bad asses in the race included Gary Hall jr Olympic Medalist on the 50 mt freestyle, he did the 1 mile swim so I did not have to worry about even think of trying to sprint against him ;)

I dove in and from the beginning i was a bit dead didn’t have my usual get out speed but i wasn’t worry since it was just a training session for me today, in the first 4 km i was holding in 2nd but end up in 3rd in the OPEN wave at the end, so ok. ate some food i went on a bike ride after that.

next weekend I’ll be racing in st. croix for the 70.3 and then back here for a while.

El NESCAFE

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

so this week doc got back to camp and there are a few of us left since most of the other athletes have gone different ways to go race. the temperature has gotten a bit cooler this past couple of days my srm was reading 47 C on my ride today. once i get home to the US im going to have to start riding on the rollers inside a sauna if i want to even come close to this, im not complaining at all, i think is great it would make any race conditions seem like a walk on the park. A couple of days ago we had terezas and my birthday party on the track for a long afternoon, half way through the run i was bonking a bit and i guess doc saw it on my face i gave me one of his ice coffee, within minutes i was back on pace and i realize that i had just run out of fuel. today on the ride i stopped at the 7eleven and decided to try some of this nescafe to find out if my stomach could keep it in and it seems to work well, so if i get approval by doc i will be taking a 6 pack of this with me to china in a few days.

so what are the ingredients ?!?!?! this is what is written on the can : Air,Gula,susu bubuk skim, kopi bubuk instan,bubuk kakao, penstabil makanan, perisa moka, natrium bikarbonat, kalium sitrat…..

hhhmmmm coming from cuba i swear this sounds like a budu recipe
anyways its taste pretty good.
