Hmmm. How much snow does mother nature want us to get? I guess it just makes up for the last 2.5 months being snow free...Madison WI is scheduled for 10-12+ inches of snow over the next 24 hours.
I pick the best recovery weeks, don't I?
It's going to be COLD COLD COLD for the next five days or so...glad I got 4.5 hours of easy spinning in so far this week at recovery pace. The rest of the week will be on the trainer.I got my book Training and Racing With a Power Meter. Needless to say, my training plan has many "secret weapon intervals" that are about to be implemented over Base III and Build I. And best of all, they can be done on the trainer even if the snow is covering the roads. Bring it, mother nature--just bring it!
The plan for the rest of the week:
Thursday--Spin 1 hour on the trainer, take a nap, study for midterms
Friday--Spin 1.5 hours OUTSIDE on the trainer in Library Mall for the Freezing for Safety fundraiser for UW cycling. Booya!
Sunday--LT TESTING! It's time to reevaluate my LT power. I'm hoping for some good results, and I know I'll get what I deserve.
Monday starts my first week of Base III, probably on the trainer for the first 3 days of the week due to the COLD weather. It's all for good through--I'm sure the temps will turn up by the begining of March for a great spring. Speaking of spring, Spring Break in NC is only 3.5 weeks away! Bring on the miles and the good times, I need a break!
I'm going to go stretch and "the stick" it up a bit. Then to bed, with dreams of a snow day dancing in my head...(yeah, I guess those don't exsist anymore in the real world, eh?)
