All star training weekend

I don't believe on valentines because you should love your family wife husband kids everyday and run the 14th to buy something because somebody said you have to buy or take some one to eat on that day.

I train a lot this weekend. I bike 32 miles on Friday and 30 on Sunday. I felt good at this was training I am improving in all aspect of the bike. On Saturday I ran 14 miles in 2:06 a solid 9 minute mile pace. I am doing this long run as base run for the up coming tri season. I don't want to push just keep a good pace to have a solid base. Yesterday went to the gym and bike on the trainer for 30 minutes. A weekend.

I watched a lot of NCAA basketball this weekend. March madness is just around the corner. About The NBA Allstar, they suck. The league is going down and you can see the lack of interest. The NBA needs to renew. Watch a college game or the Euroleague and you will see what I am talking about. Even my gf that hate basketball agree with me.

Today the quest for the cup begins is long way that might last 5 or 6 month but is the big goal for the first 1/2 of 2009 season here is the cup

The cup

Palermo with the cup th last time on 2007

The Libertadores Cup is the equivalent to the champions league of Europe for soccer in south America and Mexico. MLS team are on a lower level. It is play the first 6 months of the year with the group phase until April and then the knock out face until late June or early July. My team is Boca from Argentina. You will hear from them every now and then.

Have a great week

I agree about Valentine's Day! That is some GREAT bike mileage this weekend and a good run, too. I don't know much about basketball but when my husband watches I prefer NCAA to NBA... seems a little less boring. ;)

No Valentines?!?

I agree in part, but it sure is nice to see my hubby get creative with his homemade cards.
