|Sunrise shot from my Sunday morning ride.|
Other than the Achilles issue, I feel really good. The heavy volume training is done, and I can feel the benefits. I set two PR's in the last month in shorter events. This is the best fitness I have had, and I can't wait for the race.
Monday - 2 mile run/ Strength Work.
Tuesday - AM -Track work (Fail) - 4 miles. During the warm up my Achilles was screaming. It finally loosened up, but I didn't want to push it. Instead I worked on some walking lunges, and stairs.
PM - Bike intervals.
Wednesday - Rest day. Had to travel for work.
Thursday - AM - Bike Intervals - Different sets @ 2:1 Work to Rest ratio @ 85%. My legs felt fantastic.
Noon - 7 Mile Run in the heat. I thought it was Fall, why is it still 85F. My Achilles was much better.
Friday - Noon - 1.6 mile ocean swim against a slight current.
Saturday - Started the day with two flats in my garage. 70 mile bike ride. Started to bonk a bit at mile 65. 60 miles seems to be where I am having issues with my nutrition. During the race I need to get in more calories early.
Sunday - Brick 30/5. My legs felt tired on the ride, but came around nicely on the run.
