Cut Copy - Need You Now
Need You Now by cutcopymusic
I am in the final week of the annual 3week training camp here in Maui. Unlike last year I am going to finish the camp healthier then I arrived. Flashback; last year I came down with an Sinus infection which put me out of commission for 6weeks and left me bed ridden for the last 2/3s of the camp. It was dreadful. This year, I am healthy and gaining some good fitness for the 2011 season. We are working hard here and the gains should give all of us a good start to the season.
Cycling never disappoints in Maui. Kyle Jones, Andrew Russell, Jon Bird and I are renting Ryder Hesjedal house for the 3 weeks so inspiration is quite literally on the walls. We have done all the amazing rides except the final 3000ft of elevation to the top of the 10,000ft climb to the crater but 7000ft of climbing seemed enough on the day. We had a few spills here and there early in the camp but all seem to be healing up well.
I am building up my running from an injury but I am well again and progressing quickly. My latest run was a 45minute grind continuously up, up and up. from an elevation of 400ft to 1750ft. I got a lot of ‘Hang loose’ gestures along the way. Just the encouragement I needed.
So 3 days to go here in Maui. I’m loving the heat, enjoying the company and starting to feel fit n’strong.
Time for rest.
Hope all is well and ciao for now,
