Knock on wood I am still feeling fantastic. Tuesday I woke up with a soar throat and thought that the hard training was getting me, I contacted Scott, took out a hard bike and hard run on Wednesday and replace it with an hour light ride, got rest, vitamins and water, and Thursday i was back on track and feeling really good again. This weekend I felt literally the best I have ever felt physically during training. My Saturday swim I would even describe as magical. I can’t remember the last time I felt that fluid and strong in the water. To top that off I had the best run of my life on Sunday running 14 miles in an hour and a half, and that is with 15 minutes almost jogging. The workout was supposed to be 30 minutes at 7:15/mile, 30 minutes at 6:45/mile, 15 minutes at 6:15/mile then 15 light. I am a terrible judge of actual pace and ended up more like 6:50, 6:20, 6:00, but my hr zones were all in line. Bottom line GREAT RUN! Thanks Chrisfor running that with me. We followed that up with a 2 hour ride out to sauvie and a bit of work there then back for me, while Chris stayed to do some more hard efforts.
This week I have some traveling to do, with one hard day of training on Tuesday with some light stuff the rest of the week in prep for a sprint race on Saturday.
