I'm Hungry

I'm back and I'm HUNGRY!

I have just completed a solid month of training and I'm feeling great.  It wasn't until the last week or so that I have developed a hunger and a focused purpose to my training.  The first few weeks were slightly frustrating coming to terms with how much fitness I had lost while dealing with babsiosis.  However this past week I have started to feel my fitness and endurance levels taking small steps forward.  I'm very eager to conquer another month of training and I anticipate large gains in my fitness and endurance.  It was truly awesome to observe the level of conditioning I reached working with Matt of Organic Endurance while unknowingly couping with babsiosis.

Time was not ever spoken about nor a concern because if he swam to his abilities and swam straight then his time would take care of it self.

BIKE: Hammer the bike…
