Winter base+ week 16

The first week of the last training cycle before the Scottish duathlon champs at Stirling.  It turned out to be an eventful and very busy week and that would be without the training!

Training has gone up a gear intensity wise and I can feel the difference.  More attention to protein foods and shakes and better compression protocols are helping keep everything together and hopefully I will be lining up at Stirling in  top condition.

The stats:Bike 85.4 miles in 6h 46 with 4800 ft of climb.

Run 30 miles in 4h 41 with 1303 ft of climb.

 

I got the Ridley out this week and to be out on the open road after a winter of turbo felt absolutely amazing!  I have increased my training paces on the run and feel a lightness coming in again.
