Plugging through the week. It finally looks and feels like summer. 90’s this weekend and I’m sure people will all be bitching about that.
Rach is heading out of town a long weekend to Breitenbush for a weekend of naked hot tubbing, hiking, yoga, and whatever else it is you do down there. I’m home with the kids so I’ll be busting out the trainer for some super-early morning rides to keep a little fresh. I can’t flippin’ believe I’m getting on the trainer in June. I think I just threw up in my mouth.
Rides are progressing along just nicely. I’m slowly moving away from strict base work and adding some threshold work. I’m planning on having a solid 50-60 minutes of LT work twice a week by the time late September rolls around. I just really started getting these intervals in and I’d forgotten how mildly uncomfortable they can be.
I added strength & core work in starting this week. I worked fairly hard over the winter to make some strength gains and I mildly regret not carrying it through the spring. I did the first one yesterday and this morning my legs were noticeably heavy. This will go away after a couple more.
Running starts in mid-July. I don’t even really want to think about it right now.
I added a timer to the side for Alpenrose. 21 weeks to go. Everything feels right on schedule. My motivation is pretty high. Confidence? Well, it goes up and down. There are times when I feel I’m on the right path to have a successful season. Then there are other times when I feel I’m going to get my lunch money taken in the A 35+ races.
It’s about your mojo. I think either you have it or you don’t. There’s not that much in between. I’m getting it. It isn’t there yet but I feel it’s out there.
