This week was all about maintenance, eating healthy, getting enough sleep and just touching some fast efforts to keep the body awake but fully recovered. With Wildflower being two weeks from this saturday everything is focused on being fresh and fast for that.
This weekend was perfect timing for a tune-up race and the Silicon Valley International happened to fall on this Sunday which worked out really well. This race is held at UVAS Reservoir in the foothills just west of Morgan Hill and is one of my favorite venues. The lake is excellent and comfortable to swim in and the course is beautiful. This race is also part of the USA Productions series that my team works with throughout the year...they put on a super fun series of events in the greater Bay Area which always have great food and music afterwards (doubly awesome after a hard race).
Should have a race report to follow soon.
