Preparations for 2019

Continuing my work on track notes, I have a working prototype, just need to clean up the UI, and then start working on the iPhone cross-compile, I hope cordova works well for that.

I started a new 6-week workout block with two HIIT days, it is pretty rough from a recovery perspective, I do 45-minutes of HIIT cycling on Monday/Wednesday with 30-minutes of weight training, on Tuesday/Thursday I run, and do weights for 30-minutes each, on Friday I swim, and then do endurance focused weight training. Talking to my nutritionist about a Ketogenic plan to go with my training platform.

I keep adding to the backlog of reading materials, going through the bibliography of Michael Krumm’s excellent:  Driving On The Edge: The Art and Science of Race Driving

I have made some significant breakthroughs on my upmarket product, currently building out the underlying development platform, and pipeline using the cloud credits from FFL.

I am dying to get out in my car for a test day, looking at the next edge addicts event, or maybe just a session out at Harris Hill (which would be my preference). Hopefully, I can get that setup over the next couple weeks.


Health Update

Switched up my workout, and have been making small tweaks to my diet over the last couple months. I am still working out 5 days/week, I was doing a lot of endurance training, 30 minutes cardio, and 30 minutes weights (low weight high reps (15reps x 6 sets). For the next six weeks, I am going to switch it up with the weights, and doing 80% one rep max (10reps x 4sets). Thank you Christine from the Southwest YMCA for giving me guidance!

I cut my fruit intake over the last 6 weeks to one piece of fruit per day, was having it with every meal. I am now starting another 6-week cycle of removing fats from my diet, was eating a lot of nuts, and dried fruit, replacing that with high-protein shakes.


Ready for ‘bama

Super excited for next week, at Barber Motorsports Park!

 

Some last minute tweaks to the livery: got the Longhorn Racing Academy, and the Oakhill Wellness Center logos on the car! Thank you both, and thank you to TPWS for their continued amazing support! Also, very excited to be sharing the car with Colten Miller, we drove together at the Porsche Driving School, and were consistently sharing the 1, and 2 spots throughout, he is on a path to “convert from dirt” and will be driving the Enduro with me! Transportation is locked in, fuel is on the way, logos are done,  got some new number panels, car is ready to go, and I have been getting some good practice in on iRacing. Additionally, I have been  really putting it in at the gym, to make sure my endurance is up, lots of cardio, and high rep weight workouts, 6 days a week. Can’t wait to get out there, see Colten, work, and have fun with Chris, and LeAnn, maybe get to see Cass, and Sherman, and drive that amazing track, looks like we might get rain, which I love, finally a chance to put some time in on wets, might put in a track order for another set with Frisby :-). The logistics on this racing are intense!
