another night of speed drills on the trainer... getting through my last week of this base period, one more night at the gym, one more night at the gym, then hopefully a couple of rides this weekend if the weather co-operates. my body is feeling good, a little bit fatigued, but that's probably from a couple of late nights working on websites. i'm looking forward to my rest week next week and reminding myself that this work will pay off in the summer.
between training and trying to eat better, i've dropped a little over 20 pounds from the beginning of the year... if nothing else carrying 20 pounds less weight up the hills should help my riding this summer. the weight loss has slowed a bit now, but with the amount of training going up it's not good to be losing a lot of weight from here on in.
another long road ride on sunday if the weather allows... 60+ miles starting from pierce mill in rock creek park... if anyone is interested in coming along, get in touch so we'll know who to wait for... the ride is pretty casual, so everyone can ride their own pace with some stops to regroup.
trying to get an early night tonight and get a good nights sleep...
