The past four weeks since the 70.3m Worlds have been official "downtime" with training being limited and just doing enough to keep me ticking over. Starting this Saturday the winter base training kicks in and the hours gradually begin to increase in preparation for the Spring races, and in particular Eagleman in early June. In time I will post my 2007 season review and also a preview of the 2008 season including races and goals.
In the meantime however, we have had the first winter storm of the season (a couple of inches of snow) just in time to derail the first weekend of the base training.....at least I have a few months to catch up! It's a good job that I purchased an indoor bike trainer this past week.......
- You can almost see it....summer days of riding and tying on a race number. Plenty of options this year & it will probably be a year of trying to do a little of everything (#xterra, #MTB, #roadracing, #cyclocross #trailrunning ) #IFB
- First time having the #Vo2 & Lactate testing today at @parvillacycles Custom Sports Performance Lab. Such a good experience with @kelsc2790. What did I learn and what can you get from this testing? Apart from telling me that I have super powers 😉 it confirmed my training zones by HR & wattage as well as energy expenditure in those zones. Perfect information for continued training and importantly to outline endurance race strategies! . . . . #parvillacycles #marathonmtb #IFB #pactimo #alchemybicycles #mtbracing #parvillacustomfit
- You have to make the best of work trips and a $6 ticket to see the @memgrizz counts as a good deal in my book! . . . . . #memphis #grizzlies #IFB #nba2k19
