onwards and upwards

With the advent of the twittering and the constant preoccupation there, the blog posts have slacked a little.  Training has been going well the last 3 weeks.  Nothing to write home about, but putting in 15-20 hours of mostly base.  I am slowly building the volume, with an emphasis on strength.  My foot (plantar fascia) has really been giving me troubles so I have had to put a limit on the yogging.  I have been rolling it, massaging it, icing it, and sleeping in a boot--not so much fun, but necessary.  It is finally coming around and I can hopefully up the diet of running.

Other than that nothing much to report.  I have found a great training partner who has helped me to maintain the consistency even through the sporadically "terrible" texas weather, so that has been a real plus.  In sponsorship news, I would like to welcome Profile-Design on for another year.  I have been with them for 4 years now, and they are a great company committed to triathlon.

 I will update again when the training gets more "serious."  After all, it it still only January....
