It’s coming to the end of the winter training season and being smack dab in the middle of my last training block before I go south for training camp. Yes there is only so many more sleeps until we leave to go to our home away from home called Rome, GA.

I’ll back up a little bit with Coach Dino asking me if I would be able to focus from the 12th til the 24th only on even days doing 6 by 4min intervals. He asked if I could get this done. I was like of course I can get this done. At that point I still had about two weeks to go in my schedule that had me outside running/2 stepping my way up stairs, when the weather was good riding outside and riding the trainer/rollers inside. The new schedule was stated that even if the weather was good on the weekend I needed to do exactly what I was supposed to do. On the odd days I have been riding the rollers for a short bit of time to loosen my legs. As usual with all of my workouts I was given specific wattage range and I was hopeful that I could get the top end for all 6 of the 4min intervals. Well as I normally do I pace myself to see what happens. So the first couple of times I did the workout I tested myself to see what I could do since it had been a while since I’d really done any sustained efforts at the wattage prescribed. So after the paced couple of workouts I tried to get the overachiever high wattage and to my surprise I got one of my 4min up there. I was so happy with myself. So the next even day I went for it. It was family day so it was another morning workout which means a less stressful day for the workout and what do you know I did it I got 6 in a row of my highest wattage. I was estatic. Couldn't believe it. I had done it. Tomorrow is another even day but this workout will be after work so I get to see how it goes after work.
Tomorrow is another day.
