depends on the day. usually 6 miles.

friday:
was gonna practice some aero stuff but ended up hammering out to the flats which left my legs dead. spun back in the small ring with a couple cadence drills. took it easy. legs were achey by the end of the day.
i think i ate:
coffee
100 cals coffee oatmeal
1 scoop protein with an orange and i think 200 cals of popcorn
spinach, a potato, 2 veg patties, 2 luna bars
a whole thing of tempt which was softened to perfect softness <- carb load
possibly a diet 7up

saturday:
legs hurt. was ready to go though.
coffee
a very few walnuts and almonds
150 cals oatmeal w cinnamon and ginger
part of a gross larabar
3 cliff blocks
race
a couple walnuts and chocolate chips
a few bites of apple
a couple handfuls of chili lime chips
half a large poutine, it was the yummiest
some onion rings
a couple more chocolate chips and walnuts

It was mind blowingly fun. The weather was so gorgeous, I actually wondered whether or not to wear knee warmers. Then I remembered, my knees never get overheated, so I wore them. It worked out!

Sunday:
4 mile run
started out at a decent pace, slowed down at the end. Was still recovering from the race.
Monday:
commute
10 min tread walk
9:03 min mile
1 hour spin 85-95 rpm, <125 watts
weights: upper body and core
Tuesday:
commute
45 min spin, 3 threshold intervals
1 hr core work, some bi/tri
Wednesday:
commute
1 hour spin coached

Yep, it's pretty hard.

Ok let's see how i did this week, it was kind of a rest week

Tuesday:
commute
15 minuteswalking, 15 minutes run, ten minute miles
Upper body, targeted lats, somehow got the rhomboids involved
Wednesday:
commute, commute
1 hour coached, mostly cadence drills
Thursday:
commute
i can not remember what else. it was a ride or something...
Friday:
took 3 naps
25 mile ride
Saturday:
43 mile ride
Sunday:
30 mile ride
this was an accident. we initially set out to do a short ride in the small ring, but we found a new route, which was fun.
Monday:
race
it was short, and i did alright, not great. i didnt warm up right, i didnt prepare my bike for it, and i just did not have it in me to put a hardcore hurtin on. notes: 60 degrees, overcast/sunbreaks, lazer helmet, arm warmers, knee warmers, old champsys jersey and this year's bibs was perfect temp control and would have been fine if the rain came back. wasn't even spent at all at the end. i feel like i kind of cheated myself out of something but it was a great experience to be on that course for that race.

time to write about what's been going on, so i can reference this in the future.

got my ass beat down hard in a race a few weeks ago, well not that hard, it was mostly a strategy thing, but i think i should have been able to time trial myself onto the podium. anyways, it shook me, i never lost that bad before, and along with all this other fallout from my injuries, i lost my whatever mojo i had left after getting hurt. so of course i decided to train way harder, and stopped recovering well apparently. it got to the point where my legs were always always hurting and depleted, unless i was pedaling when i got some relief, and even then all i could feel was burn. i kept putting off rest days. finally talked to a friend about my issues and figured out a plan. no hot showers, only cold. regular icing and ice baths. adequate electrolytes. foam rollering. lots of protein, way more than i think i need. and today i am off the bike, for the second day this week. ran 4 miles and gonna swim a little later. next week im back on the plan. i do have to say, those 45/15 intervals are amazing at training slow twitch muscles, i can feel my blood shifting around when i do em. and i am doing better climbing and descending. life is great and i want a unicycle. had to stop training upper body, so i could heal more, i can't wait to get back to it. hopefully soon.
