Two great training weeks… what more could a girl ask for?
Scott and I joined the Spinners Group for our ride on Tuesday as planned. Long story short… next week we are moving up in pace group. Sure we may get dropped somewhere along the route but what won’t kill you will make you stronger. The fact is that we were not pushed at all this week. I want to be pushed. I want my legs to talk to me when I get off my bike. I want this ride and workout to count. I want to ride with an organized pack. So next week will be the week.
I continue to enjoy my runs. Seems they are a bit more enjoyable here lately. I am feeling strong, focused, and healthy. Mentally I feel tapped in. That is a good thing!! Last night I had a trainer ride and then quickly transitioned into my run. Legs felt great. I was a bit worried about the mild case of shin splints but it was not a factor at all. Seems the icing has worked like a charm.
Tonight I will get my 6 miles in and then take tomorrow off. Saturday we are joining our local YMCA for a cycle event. I am choosing the 60 mile route. This will be my longest ride for this year so far. Going more for the endurance focus rather than pace. Will also plan and take in the right level of fluids and fuel while in motion. Something I need more practice on.
Report will follow on Sunday. :))
Side Note: Thanks Shannon for hooking this girl up with 3 trainer workouts with kickin music to boot. You rock girl!!!
