Tahoe Prep: Week 8

This weekend is going to full of family stuff, so the training is in the books. Let's see how I did.

Drop a pound: Check!

  • Last week: 184.6#
  • This week: 183.2#

Ride the "hard climb" three days: Uh... sort of.

This week ended up being something of an oddball. I hit my saddle time and climbing targets, but I did it on routes I haven't done before. I'm confident that I got my training in, and it's nice to switch things up a bit. But I have to admit it's hard to methodically incerease the training intensity if I'm not hitting the same routes regularly. Next week I'll get back to the usual rhythm.

Ride 3+ hours: Check!

Final time: 3:21

Three rides in new places. Awesome.

Do 2 Gymnastic Bodies workouts: Nope.

I did a short run/push-up workout on Wednesday, so I did some cross training, but that doesn't count.

When I do push-ups and planks, I can feel that my core isn't what it was. I've got to figure out how to get some GB workouts into my normal weekly rhythm.

This Week's Checklist

  • Drop a pound
  • Ride the "hard climb" three days
  • Ride 3+ hours
  • When Janell goes to Zumba, do a GB workout.
