Great Training Day

We went out to the Blackwater Creek Trails on Sunday with Tyler and Jordan, both of whom are seriously considering joining the East Coast Madness team. I ran the 10 mile loop, and everybody else did the 7 mile trail. We ran into Eddie out there, who knocked out 5 1/2 miles. The weather was beautiful (especially for this late into November), and everybody had a good time, and I think a good workout. I know that I did!

We haven't pinned down the next team training date yet, it may be this weekend, but with the Holidays and out of town guests it's hard to say. I know that everyone will keep working individually until we get something together.

This spring I want to start working on some multi-discipline team training sessions, and I think that the Blackwater Creek Trails would be ideal for a team trail run (10 miles with gear) followed by a longer bike run (maybe 15 miles). We also need to start looking for a spot to do some flat-water paddling.

If any of you have suggestions for new training locations I'd love to hear them.

See you all at the race on Thursday, remember: "Train hard, race easy."
