So the numbers are in… last week is now history… did I meet the 14 hours of saddle time…. Nope. I came in with just over 11 hours.
The mistake that I keep making is not taking a true rest day. Weather and other events took a 4 day riding week and made it into a 6 day riding week. So when the last ride of the week came I (again) had trashed legs. I am going to spare you my whining and just move on.
Still, the weekend was full of riding and tons of fun! You know it is good when you leave the house on Sunday at 6:45am and return home at 6pm that night. Scott and I were so exhausted that we gave into the bed not long after 8pm. We had such a fantastic time together. Truly worth being wasted on a Monday.
So this week.. I am drilling in my head to only ride my scheduled 4 days. According to our plan this will be the mix:
Monday – REST… YES!!! I am taking it.
Tuesday – 2hrs.
Wednesday – weights / yoga
Thursday – 2 hours
Friday – Off / yoga
Saturday – 5.5 hours
Sunday - 4 hours
Total Saddle Time: 13.5 hours.
