The focus the last few weeks has been volume. I have been logging a lot of hours, but feeling good. Funny thing is I am training more, but I must be balancing my time more efficiently because I really am not noticing it. My diet has not been all that stellar, especially last weekend when we went to the coast for Elee’s Birthday. I was 149 Friday am and 156 on Monday evening. I have been much better this week and was 153 this morning. For some reason I have been wanting more sugar lately, which I could always do without before.
I have just started thinking about my next race on Sept. 9th, I did a couple loops on the bike course this week, and it is tough! Some long steep climbs, aggressive down hills, and lots of wind. I plan to hit it a few more times primarily to get comfortable attacking the downhill.
I get a well deserved day off from training tomorrow, and then a 3 sport saturday for 5.5 hours, then a long run on Sunday.
