It's hard to believe but 25% of my 40-week training plan is already in the books. In that time, I've gotten quite a lot of cycling in, have really built up my endurance and strength and dropped about 7.5 pounds. There were a couple of difficult weeks in there thanks to the power failure, the storms, and Christmas travel back to NJ, but it's indeed nice to flip through the training log and see that I've ridden about 6 days a week for most of that time.
Anyway, a glance back at last week. A week that saw me off the trainer and out on the roads twice in one week! In January!
Trainer Ride - Small ring spin for 1 hour + lifting.
Trainer Ride - "Enter the Red Zone" Spinervals video + squats.
Road Ride - 30 miles through Snoqualmie & North Bend with 1300 feet of gain.
Mountain Bike - a very fast 21 miles on the "Thrilla in Woodinvilla" route.
Scheduled off day.
Mountain Bike - Biked to Tokul West, rode some trails, and did 4 hours of trail work. Together with four others, we cleared nearly 50 fallen trees from the trails. 21 miles of biking total. Did not include trail work time in hourly total for the week.
Road Ride - 50.5 miles through the Snoqualmie Valley, including 2350 of elevation gain.
