Training continues to go well. Just finished a week that included over 6 hours the bike and 6 on the run, in addition to an indoor soccer game and a day of snowboarding. Hit several key workouts including a 2 x 20 threshold bike workout, a 2 hour erg simulated group ride on the computrainer, a 3 x mile (5:39/mile w/ 5:39 rest between reps) run workout, and lots of easy running with strides. Weight this week fluctuated between 164-170, generally staying in the 165-167 range.

10 More hard days of training to go before a 10 day taper. Looking to get in 2 more run intervals, 2 more run tempos, and a long run before the taper. Right now running 5:50’s for 8k seems very doable in my mind. Hopefully with a few more good workouts and a successful taper (first real taper I’ll ever attempt, more on that in a future post) my body will be on the same page come March 3rd.
