More Personal

I have had some requests to make things a little more personal on the blog lately. Not really the 'love life' aspect but more what is happening on the training day to day. Now this can get a little complicated, first off I feel odd about sharing my 'secrets' with every triathlete out there. That is what I get paid for! On a second note I find that when athletes post 'numbers' on their blog; often time they are used to intimidate the competition.

Last year I can vividly remember checking out Paul Tichelaar's blog, and when I jumped on his wheel after the swim at Nationals last year all I could think was how high his aerobic threshold watts were. Not really what you want spinning through your head while you try and hold a wheel.

I don't think this was Paul's purpose for stating numbers but it worked. Now I know what to shoot for this year wattage wise.

January training went well, starting to bring running back into the mix. I timed my training load perfectly. Hit the wall after about 18 days and backed off at just the right time. Unfortunately the following week saw a little bit to much added stress and lack of sleep and the sickness hit. After 3 days of light workouts, I'm starting back into the mix.

This weekend I'm off to see Race Across the Sky:

Hi,

I'm here online for the children of Haiti.

I'm at this site for a non-profit group that gives time to
building oppurtunities for the children in haiti. If anyone wants to give money then do so here:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They provide kids in Haiti books and teach them.

Yes, they're a real cause.

It would be awesome if you could help us

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.
