So here I go again. Formal training begin again. The past six weeks have been delightful. Staying active, swimming…(getting colder on the beach), riding, and easy runs. along with cheesemaking and breadmaking, and generally enjoying life and work.
My new sidebar widget gives me an outline of the stages of training ahead of me. These are from my google calendar. (The training calendar).
My assistant asked me today what I learned last time that I’d like to apply this time. Good question. I learned last time round what recovery was, and why it is necessary. So this time, I will go hard of course, but also make sure I get rid of accumulated fatigue. Keep the fitness high, but lose the fatigue. Also I’d like to do more run training using the garmin virtual partner. I feel that this helped alot on my run leg earlier in the year.
This morning I did a ride (steady) down the freeway and back. It was dark and wet and not alot of fun, but here is the snapshot. snapshots like this are useful at the beginning of a training cycle.
