It was a hectic, adventurous week for me and my training. I was a guest at the Timex Multisport Team training camp from Thursday thru Saturday, held at the Timex Performance Center in New Jersey (home of the New York Giants' practice facility). For the team, it was a chance to reconnect with teammates, meet the rookies, learn all about the new Timex Ironman Run Trainer 2.0 GPS Watch and hand out some awards. For me, it was a chance to look behind-the-scenes at the oldest professional tri team, run a 5K started by Mike Reilly and learn about my lactate threshold.
Thanks again to Timex for letting me tag along, Catalyst for making it happen, and to the athletes for answering my questions, even when they were sprinting on a treadmill.
On to the week that was. Share your own recaps in the comments.
