A Staten Island triathlete and endurance coach ventures into the ultramarathon realm where there are seemingly no limits to human endurance. In 2013, he successfully finished the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning (picture of 2013 Grand Slam finishers above; I'm second from right), becoming only the 282nd person (since its beginnings in 1986) and only the fourth New Yorker to finish four of the oldest and most prestigious 100 mile ultramarathons in the U.S. in only 10 weeks.

More swimming improvement!

This is amazing! This was my swim this morning (March 13). Last swim like this was on January 23.

Descending sets with paddles.

500m 1:00 rest (prev 7:11, now 6:57)
400m 1:00 rest (prev 5:44, now 5:34)
300m 0:45 rest (prev 4:16, now 4:09)
200m 0:30 rest (prev 2:49, now 2:42)
100m finish (prev 1:22, now 1:17).

To the left is the workout on January 23. To the right was this morning's workout. Big difference!

Hard work pays off. If I get my bike and run to improve more along these lines, I will be unstoppable!
