|Unscheduled snow day boredom|
I wish I would have noticed the roads ahead of time, so I could sleep in. I got all ready for work and then while digging the truck out I took one look at the car and said forget about it. The snow was so deep on the hood of the truck that there is no way the car is getting through this. I just worked the morning from home instead.
I caught up on blogs and did as little as possible. It was a very relaxing day. Maybe a bit too relaxing. I had my last pizza, alot of it, before the race this weekend. I will eat proper from here on in. It's bad enough I'm carrying a few extra pounds with me, I don't want to add a large pepperoni to the mix.
Suprisingly the pool was still open so I went for a very easy swim. I might be over-tapering at this point but oh well. I'm actually trying to stay focused on the race this weekend. I find myself very excited about the post-race training since I start the performance phase of training. More hours, lots of them. I get to concentrate on the bike too, I can't wait!
I find myself inspired by Simon's IM Singapore Race Report. He had a bike split that gives me wet dreams and I just had to know what kind of training plan he followed to make it happen. He was kind enough to share some valuable insight into how he managed to average OVER 40km/h. Needless to say, alot of hard work and then alot more hard work on top of that. Amazing story, I recommend you go read it. When I grow up, I want to bike that fast some day :)
