This was one of the few weeks in the middle of the season that I had to train freely and as much as I wanted. I told myself that it was a 'no excuses' week and although I was not feeling all that well I pushed through it day after day and put in some great training. I will only get one more week like this before Vineman 70.3 and my training this week was a really good indication of fitness and progress. I got in some really had sessions and I am looking forward to racing again.
I also got in some relaxation with my girlfriend and family in the last week which was really nice and helped rejuvenate my energy and spirits.
