Fall is for. . .

FAST: With the race season starting seem not that far away, we are building more and more intensity into our training program. Typically I’ve been doing 2 to 3 intensity workouts a week with some solid level 4 efforts. Beth Taylor and myself have been getting in Glenn Jobe’s infamous 5×5 workout once a month as well as a trip down to Colfax or the little town of Washington for some low elevation intervals every other week.

FUEL: After workouts, especially intervals, having some kind of post-workout snack/meal is key for a full recovery. Tacos Jalisco’s is usually my fuel of choice, however, packing your own recovery snack can be fun and tasty too. Below are fajitas and chocolate milk, kept cool in a thermos, YUM.

FUN: What would roller skiing be without some kind of shenanigans? Here we are piloting a revolutionary device to help minimize road rash during rollerski accidents.

and FOLIAGE?: Well I guess fall foliage is the one thing I’ll miss out on after moving to Truckee from the northeast, but a quick look at the weather forecast back home makes it seem worthwhile. http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=43.907245174896936&lon=-69.96272489746093
