My cycling numbers are high again - the Monday was a holiday where I got a hardcore mountain bike ride in. These mountain bike rides are priceless. I get waay more of a workout mountain biking than road riding, or on a trainer for that matter. While an hour of MTB trumps and hour of trainer any day, I am aware that I desperately need more time in the 'aero' position to strengthen muscles and get comfortable in it. That's a nagging thought in the back of my mind.
This next week will be exciting! I am completely back to a normal routine week. No extra days off to screw up my workout totals. Having said that, I see a slight drop in the number of hours spent training since I do not have a holiday to hammer out a 3hr bike ride. This shouldn't be as much of a problem because now the real running begins. With Around The Bay Race coming up, my running numbers are venturing into distances that are scary to me. Come to think of it, my long-slow run is the distance of a Half-Marathon this weekend. Wait, how did that happen?!? Who wrote this crap? Where did I get this training program from? I'm gonna die!!
