- Post run functional strength work...this season I'm taking a more holistic view of my #swimbikerun & ensuring that strength work doesn't get skipped. . . . #triathlon #ironman #salmingrunning #IFB #triathlete #2020goals #running
- Impromptu Bowie Isolation Marathon
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
- First cross race of the season at #AACX today....always a tough race when you are the race director as well but had a solid race for 4th in the Elite Masters. . . . . . #IFB #cyclocross #parvillacycles #vandessel #tifosioptics #pactimo #industrynine

The Cycle Starts Again......
It's now four weeks after the 70.3M World Championships and the time for thinking about 2009 has begun. The past four weeks have just been about recharging the batteries, sleeping past 6:00am and enjoying some desserts! I have just been ticking along with a few workouts a week keeping the body aware that training will not be far off of the horizon. As of this week however, base training has started to get kicked up a notch and a 4-hour ride on the Fixie this past Saturday served as notice that the bike work will be a major focus of this "off-season". More details will follow as I fully outline the plans for 2009 but suffice to say that I need to get the bike splits lower while continuing to run strongly....
