Catching Up Apr 1-6

Ok, I know I haven't writtetn in a while, but things have been crazy. I will try my best to get you up to speed. I traveled to San Diego for the Timex Team Camp. GREAT TIME! I love the team and everyone that is related to it. Ben, our team manager did a great job in his first year putting the camp together. Nice Job!

Each day we got presentations from all of our sponsors...of which I will name a few. Blue Seventy has an updated cuff for the 2007 Helix wetsuit. It solves the issues with leaky sleeves. They are by far the more versitile wetsuit that I have tried. Keep your eyes open for something special regarding next year.

The TTX frames...well, I have already told you how fast they are...seriously though, they are much more stiff than anything carbon that I have ever been on. Perfect for the IMAZ course.

Spenco is a sponsor that makes insoles for shoes and cycling gloves. I am helping them with their launch of the "Rip-It" triathlon specific gloves. More to come soon. Their insoles have now replaced my superfeet and are much softer. If you ever get sore feet during long runs, it could be from inserts that are too hard. Spenco makes a soft insert that is still very stiff. Check it out.

Related to my injury, the TPMassage Rollers and Balls are helping to fix my foot and ankle problems. The tightness actually stem from up into the calf. Check out the site http://www.tpmassageball.com/ I think that every athlete should give them a chance. You won't go back to anything else that you were using.

Ok, enough rambling....here is what I have done the past week. I had to treat camp like complete recovery almost....I am feeling better because of it.
