Hey, friends! I hope you had a great weekend! I just wanted to check in real quick with a training recap from this past week. Overall it was a good, solid week of training. I am still figuring out the whole self-coaching thing. This week was hard for me because every day included high intensity in at least one of my workouts for the day expect for Monday. Physically it was hard to nail all my intervals later in the week and mentally it was difficult to prepare myself for race pace or faster intensity every day. What I love about self coaching is that I am always learning. All the intensity last week felt like a bit too much and I adjusted my workouts for this next week to include a few more base type workouts.

Question: Are you guys interested in more specifics/details with my training? Paces? Distance? Exact workouts (instead of me typing “TT bike workout 2 hours”)? I already feel like it’s sorta a jumble of all my training for the week and don’t want to provide a bunch more if you aren’t interested. If you are though, I would be happy to! Let me know in the comments.
