- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
- You have to make the best of work trips and a $6 ticket to see the @memgrizz counts as a good deal in my book! . . . . . #memphis #grizzlies #IFB #nba2k19

- A morning spin along the seafront today....seeing what's new and what hasn't changed! . . . . . . . #thorpebay #cycling #beachlife #vandessel #IFB #parvillacycles #ciclismo #veldrijden #cyclocross #southend

How about a little bit of Southern Comfort.......
Well the recovery week is close to being over and the second build phase of the training period starts tomorrow, hopefully with a 4.5hr ride if the ice storm passes and gives us safe road conditions.
To begin this phase Sarah and I are heading south for a few days to warm-up and take in the charm of Charleston, SC. So from Monday thru Friday we are away on a Banks Mini-Training Camp, well that's what I am calling it, Sarah is calling it a vacation!
The bike isn't travelling with us but the trunks, swim toys and running shoes are. I have already found a public 50m pool (just minutes from the hotel) and hopefully Charleston will have some good running routes. To be honest it really is a vacation but I just hope to be able to run everyday and have at least a few trips to the pool. Running is the key as the day after we get back I have the B&A Half-Marathon and I want to use it as a good indicator of fitness as I work up to the National Marathon on March 29th.
Having never been to Charleston or South Carolina for that matter, we're looking forward to taking in its warm hospitality (and warmer weather!), gracious living, vibrant history, and Southern charm. Hopefully I won't come back with too much southern hospitality stuck to my ribs......
