6/20 - 6/26/2011

Got off to a good start this week with an extra layer of strength in my legs but must have eaten something funny and/or be fighting something off because friday I really felt run down and even with saturday off I still feel lacking.

Even though I am sure this is not a training volume problem I think after these big mid season events I am going to adjust some of my daily volumes and reduce some of my bike miles to ensure better sustained energy throughout blocks.

6/13 - 6/19/2011

Finished up some good recovery from my last block this week. It was nice to have some time for adventures and relaxation.

 The weather has really started to turn around and work is getting busy finally so lots going on. I spent some time getting entry and equipment requirements figured out for my big races in July (Treasure Island & Vineman). Opened up the legs this weekend for the last big push of training and preparation. Not feeling entirely myself but hopefully once I get the week rolling I will feel better about things.
