I've been out of the endurance loop for a while. There was the house remodel (still working on it). And OH YEAH... I have a new son, Samuel Robert Fernandez Suratos! Sam was born on Nov. 19, 2008. Here are some pictures http://picasaweb.google.com/rqsuratos/MeetSam#
This year I won't be training with TNT. I love TNT, but travelling to all of the training sites stretches me a bit thin. I'm going to try and fit my training into my current schedule with the goal of not disturbing my family life. I admit that it will be a challenge, especially having no coach (I actually have to hold myself accountable). I just cancelled my gym membership which was also the place where I was swimming.
I think this blog is going to be important in finding a training program that works with a busy type such as myself. Hopefully you will find something good from it too.
Here are my beginning stats. I'm currently 5'6" tall at 171 lb (I raced Lake Placid at ~155lb). My waist is holding steady at 32". My resting heart rate is 43 bpm. My main exercise is my weekly league roller hockey game. Obviously I'm going to have to get on a bike pretty soon.
My plan for this blog is to:
- Chronical my training (I plan to have a link to a tracking spreadsheet).
- Note things that work and don't work.
- Talk nutrition and weight loss (for those of you who know, I went from 220lb to as low as 155lb).
- Random stuff
Thanks for reading. Please leave me comments!
