A great ride to finish up an amazing week of training.
It is hard to believe that in two weeks from today I will be on my way home from my first 70.3 Ironman.
Today was nothing special. 40 miles on the trainer as it was too hot for me to ride outside. I watched Tiger Woods play some great golf. Legs were tired. Rode easy towards the end I started mixing in .5 mile at aerobic pace and .5 mile hard. The last mile I rode all out to push beyond the pain and fatigue. It was a great way to finish.
One more tough week of training coming up and then the taper. This week will be challenging to keep things in perspective with two days of fireworks and parties.
Off to play Legos with my son and hopefully watch some Olympic Trials.
