Wow, the sun is out! Amazing how a little sun can make your day so much better, especially since we have been getting pounded with rain.
After returning last night from a couple days of travel for work I am back home and ready for a weekend of training before heading back to New Jersey on monday for work. I wish I could say I like New Jersey but deep down I hate it. Sure, work will be fine but New Jersey is a far cry from California and I am not turing my flip flops in for anything!
Next week will be a rest week for me and it is good timing as I have plenty of work to do next week and travel will sap my energy. After next week I move into my second base phase...I will start to ramp up the mileage and add a few more structured workouts. Nothing will be hard but there will be plenty of time spent riding and running hills and swimming with early morning masters. I think after this second base phase you are going to see a "new" me. I am feeling stronger everyday and after a few more weeks I think I will be ready to really dial it up. I am pretty impressed how quickly things are coming around for me.
So, it is expected to rain this weekend so my guess is I will be swimming, riding my trainer and getting my running shoes (and dog) covered in mud. Not exactly my kind of weather but at least I am home with Jess and able to get in some workouts.
Take care and enjoy your weekend!
