Updates on Brand Ambassador Michael Drackert
I received an unexpected free race entry to the Goundhog 10K. The whole route is located in underground storage caverns. While the outside temperature was below freezing, it was a warm 65 F in the caverns. I raced well on minimal training as I'm coming out of an off season. Not my fastest 10K, but I finished in the top 20 out of +1,000 people.
Spent a week in Hawaii for vacation. I got in touch with the Hawaiian Ultra Running Team for some trail running recommendations. Needless to say, the trails did not let me down. It was absolutely beautiful. I used the Tri-Phase endurance fuel pre runs and one packet of the Electrolyte Replacement for a couple long runs, including a tough 15 miler with close to 4,000 feet elevation gain.
Training is ramping up with about 10 hours per week spread across the bike, run, and swim plus weight training. I'm frequently using the Complete Recovery for the amino acids as well as the chia bars. The rest of February includes a lot of base volume.
- March I'm racing the Tinman Biathlon... 10K run followed by 20 mile bike.
- April I'm racing MaxTrax Duathlon (1.5 mi run, 15 mi bike, 3 mi run) and the GC Off-Road Duathlon (2mi trail run, 15 mi mountain bike)
