Well I am back in sunny Solvang. Yesterday was a solid training day. I started out with a solid longer swim session (unfortunately though I was too tired to get in some faster speeds) of 4500m, after a nap, some food and rest, we ventured out towards Drum Canyon (52miles round-trip). The ride was an easy 3.5hours. Later I was able to get in an easy 45minute run around the vineyards.
I think the training is going well now that I am back into the swing of things. I question this decision of mine to leave family and friends daily. It is hard to justify sometimes but I know in my heart I need to at least give it that chance. If nothing else, I know I can at least say I went for it. This is not to say that I cannot train in Penticton - literally the best place in Canada however, training daily with a coach like Chuckie is a dream in itself. The motivation, the work ethic and the daily reminders will help make dreams a reality.
