Winter base+ week 6

Week 1 cycle 2 a good solid week training with both time targets met and the biking plan absolutely smashed!  Running however did not go so well still a bit of a niggle so speed work was out however I did make up for that by getting out on the trails and on some I had not ran before.  Every cloud has a silver lining!

Bike: 98 miles, 7 hours 875 ft over 5 sessions.  Including 2 turbo int sessions and 1 single leg drills.

Run: 21.5 miles 3h 45m 959 ft of climbing over 4 sessions.

Although I can feel the training taking it’s toll I am certain I am doing the correct thing.  Recently in the press the value of base training has been questioned “Base training is largely unstructured, low-intensity cruising”!
