Depending on how my training cycle goes, every now and then I get this
cool thing called “free time”.
Being a full time athlete and working part time with the Padre's, free time is hard to come by. But when I do have it, I like to spend it with my family and friends.
This past weekend I got some of that free time, and since it was also my rest week, I had 2 extra days off…Wednesday and Saturday!
My family loves to hike, as do I, so this past beautiful Sunday morning my family and I took a quick hike out to El Capitan Reservoir. This trail is a family favorite because of it's unparalled beauty, but mostly because it is really close to my uncle's house.
It is a great trail to hike right now. Due to the rain storms that we just had in San Diego the streams are finally flowing!
Next week I'll begin a new training cycle and will be back to spinning in circles. From now until June-ish, I will be on what is called a “2 week cycle”. 2 weeks of training 6 days a week and then a rest week. I only train 4 days during rest weeks, with Wednesdays and Saturdays off.
