Since the stair climbing year goes into an "off-season" during the summer in the U.S. I have to find something to do during the summer to keep me fit. I am kind of in a rotation the past few years of alternating and focusing on biking and running. This summer just so happens that Im motivated to bike. Last summer I focused on running and had a great summer of racing but come fall my stair climbing legs I think werent quite where I wanted them to be going into the Willis Tower race. So this summer I am going to focus on cycling, all summer long while still maintaining 10-20 miles of running a week. Cycling legs = stair climbing legs no doubt about it. So if you were wondering how I am going to train this summer, miles and mile and more miles and races on the bike. As well as a little backwards running. Possibly going for a couple world records in backwards running, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.
From a couple summers ago. 2nd place in Peoria Crit
