10/27/11 – South Georgia Throwdown

Took a long break from posting on the blog and writing my own programming. During the 10 weeks I followed the OPT Big Dawgs Blog and saw some great…scratch that….some insane results. I loved putting it in someone else’s hands for a while. Just competed in the South Georgia Throwdown this passed weekend. Great time! Solid event with solid people.  Felt great going into it. Nutrition was dialed in, and conditioning felt great, not at it’s peak, but felt great. My strength was feeling better than ever, even though that has not been my current focus. The training on the blog leading up to this was highly lactic. I have never been so comfortable in “pain”. Only downside to a lot of the training leading up to this weekend was that I felt like my motor in the longer time domains might suffer a little bit. But I felt confident on how to pace and control myself  if those were to come up. Results from the weekend.
