Howdy, gang! I've missed you here, but have been trying to follow on FB.
MQ: awesome thoughts for the weekend, thanks!
TASM: sending hugs & positive vibes; so glad to hear you've been able to get back to the pool!
Yoshiko & TT: looking forward to reading your RR!
ksurp: just keep plugging away at it! taper is around the corner!
Sparty: yay, swim! also, thanks!
So, last week and this are my last two major volume weeks. The fatigue is starting to mess with my mind a bit, allowing some micro-moments of doubt/fear/panic, but they are brief and I pay them no mind for the most part.
When last I posted (one week ago Friday), I swam.
Sat- run 12 miles
Sun- brick: ride 103 miles at the CRW Climb to the Clouds (Sudbury, MA to Mt Wachusett and back) and 6 mile run
Mon- DOR & meeting with my coach/PT (former asymmetries in movement are gone!)
Tue- a.m. OWS 45 minutes; p.m. trainer ride 2:30:00 at 60-75% FTP
Wed- early morning masters swim 4000y; late morning run 8 miles; afternoon drive to Lake Placid
Thu- a.m. ride 48 miles on IMLP bike course with AdCo (with 2x 10 mi tempo for me); p.m. run 8 miles (from hotel along last 4 miles of IMLP bike course & back)
Fri- 2 loops of the IMLP swim course
I have skipped both of my strength workouts this week, which is kinda sad because they don't take that long to do. Given what's on the plan for Sat and Sun, the strength is just not going to get done.
