Game on.

It's on. I have now entered the "peak" phase of my training and even though it has been a long season I have plenty of motivation going into these final weeks. My key workouts now will be race simulation bricks with varying intervals at race pace and also focusing on fueling as I would in the race. I really like these workouts because I love dialing up the intensity.

Recovery from these workouts is going to be as important as the workouts themselves. So I will definitely be very conscious of how my body is feeling and will make sure I am doing everything right to going into my peak workouts ready to go all out.

This weekend was solid. I had a good brick on Saturday. It was a tough MTB ride with over 4000ft of climbing and then a run off the bike in which I felt incredible. I really nailed my nutrition in this workout. Sunday it as a nice long run in San Elijo lagoon and a nice easy spin along the coast in the afternoon.

That's it. Here are some more photos from Tahoe:

Can't wait to hear about your intense training. I should have something bright and new for you to look at in a day or two!!!

On a side note...apparently I'm a stud of sorts for doing five hours of hilly urban riding on the SS. Who'd of thunk?
