Your results are in

Thanks to all of you who voted in the off-season poll, and to those of you who left such great comments. Here are the final results:
  • 44% of you will be focusing on your weakest event.
  • 22% of you will be doing something other than what was listed.
  • 16% of you will be increasing training intensity.
  • 8% of you say, "What off-season?"
  • 4% of you will be decreasing training intensity but focusing on something else like yoga.
  • 4% of you will have 2010 as your first season.
Already I've found myself not living up to my goal of focusing on my weakest event: swimming. I like running so much, and it's easier to get ready for than a swim, that I just go out and do it instead of hitting the pool.

In my defense, though, there are only a few milder days of fall left, so I'm trying to take advantage of them by being outside. There will be plenty of cold days ahead to go and warm up in a pool. I will actually start heading to the pool more here in the next couple weeks.

Again, thanks for your votes and for your comments. Have a wonderful next week!

Today I had a running event (13.5 km./8.4mi) with hills and descent, very good for my workout. 'Till weather 'll be fine and sunny I'll try to go on with this kind of training. Anyway swimming pool is behind the corner.
Wonderful training w.e. to you.

I am, so far, working on my weakest link, and actually and surprisingly having fun with it.

Thanks for posting the results of your poll. The winter time in FL is, for sure, the best time to be running and having access to only outdoor pools, I sometimes find it pretty hard to go swimming, even if they're heated. And even harder getting out ;-)
