Tuesday marked our first revisit to some intensity in training.
It began in the pool this morning with 20x50 (60/45) ez/hard followed by 6x200 start speed. Not a lot but a good start to build on. Next stevo and I did some heat maintenance in the pool room. 90 mins on the rollers at 33 degrees listening to green day. I felt like a rain cloud today as i sat hunched over my bike dripping sweat drops. The ride didn't feel as hard as i remember them being last year but i think it hit me later on at the run.
The run was at elk lake on a beautifull day. 20min warmup to Steady state. 4x6' tempo followed by 4x1' quick. Couldn't get going on the run felt like a sack of bricks.
