Coach x 2 weeks = one tired girl
So to recap this past week I will break it down in small sections:
Cycle - Although I still hate the stupid isolated leg drills I do see improvement in avoiding the "clunking" noise. I have REALLY been focusing on my pedal stroke. All in an effort to correct the awful rocking motion and I am very pleased to say that Scott mentioned much noticeable improvement following a ride together over the weekend. SUCCESS!!
Strength Training: I have lost track with how many weeks I been incorporating a steady 2 session per week routine. I would guess 8 or more weeks. This week I will change up the reps and rotation of some of the exercises. Looking forward to this. Even this I can see improvement in. Do you see the light bulb coming on?
Running: With all of coaches prescribed riding workouts (5-6 per week) I have been doing good to get in a 3 to 5 mile run once a week. So when a fellow friend wanted to run 20 minutes following our long ride on Saturday I worried that I would be a slug and slow him down (8:19 mile 1, 8:30 mile 2, and 8:19 pace for the last of the remaining time). I was more than pleased and once I realized that 20 minutes was over... relief.......LOL!
So what does all of this mean? Am I making improvements that will show in our first Spring Race in 4 WEEKS? One would only hope so.
