Two months into this and I haven't given up. Yet.
This next Set will screw up my routine. My official training plan starts January 3rd but that is right smack dab in the middle of this Set. Sets are 4 weeks long, the last week being recovery. Perhaps I grind out 2 weeks and then use the last week of the year as an early recovery. Perhaps that is the carrot I'll dangle in front of me to help motivate me out of bed. An unscheduled recovery week ONLY if I succsessfully get all my early morning rides in. Ohh, this may not be enough but I need all the reasons to get out of bed that I can muster!
WEEK 8 TOTAL (Set 2, Week 4 - Maintenance Mode, Recovery Week)
