Nothing like reading Chuck Palahniuk on the beach.

 

 

Another post from the iPhone, once again excuse the quality.

Last night was freezing. I woke up at 3am and had to pee. I held it until I woke up because it was so cold I was afraid to leave my bed. The wake up alarm I chose this morning was ‘blah blah blah’ by my girl Ke$ha. There were mixed reviews on this choice.

Today was a workout day. TEMPO. I’m not going to give away our workouts or training times but lets just say the wolverines are looking pretty damn good right about now. MUCH BETTER than last year. Did almost 3 miles more than I tempoed at this time a year ago.

After lunch and some rest, we had a mandatory team bonding session through the viewing of “Band of Brothers”. We watched the first two episodes. Intense stuff. Ross from friends is in the first one and he’s a dick.

Killed some more time this afternoon reading and swimming in lake Michigan before dinner. Chicken nuggets and mashed potaters, OMNOMNOM.

Currently typing this post while watching the third episode of B.O.B. It’s good team bonding. Watching the men on the show form strong friendships with each other through their struggle is pretty symbolic to our time here at camp with the new freshmen as we prepare to begin the hell that is xc season. Thankfully we’re not being shot at by nazi’s.

Gibbys wife runs the marathon at Worlds in about 30min. Gibby looks nervous as hell right now. Good luck Kathy!

Until next time,
EAT RUN SWAG
