Week 19 Review
Anyhow, with all this rest I'm feeling like my contents are under pressure. I have fully 'recovered' and I am packed full of energy waiting to be released on my next set of training. Given my foot issue and reduction in running I think I am going to make an effort to watch my nutrition as well. I've been steadily gaining half a pound a week since I stopped dieting. Admitedly I over indulge on sweets and bad things so it wouldn't take much to level out. This week was no better, lots of pizza and lots of junk food. I like my comfort food, especially when injured. Oh and my back pain has returned. I'm certain it is from wrenching on the wife's bike. I haven't had back pain since the summer and I took for granted that it wasn't around. I am pretty sure some stretching will solve it. Nothing critical, just annoying all day long.
Moving forward, I'm into the final Set before Around the Bay race. I have 3 weeks of maintenance and 1 week of taper left. I'm going to have to offset my lack of running cardio work with bike or something else I think. We'll see if I decide to run this week.
WEEK 19 TOTAL (Set 5, Week 4 - Base Build, Recovery Week)
