|Yep This Was The Highlight Of My Week|
So with that being said, things got switched up a little. I got in 3 hard core sessions and it is amazing how easy these are when you don't have big workouts before hand. I haven't included those in my totals but will do so going forward. I also got in an aqua jogging session. For the saddle sores, well I spent a lot of time soaking in Epson salt tub, and getting in the habit of applying Bourdeaux Butt Paste afterward. The highlight of the week was realizing they have a new maximum strength version that has 40% Zinc Oxide. Hopefully I can get back on the bike soon but I am going to let the saddle sores fully recovery so until then I will continue playing The Waiting Game.
I did make it back to the track to repeat the 2x3 mile intervals that I have been doing. The first one was 17:26 with 5:43, 5:51, 5:50 but I fell apart mid-way thru mile 2. The sun was out in full force, there was little wind, and I was roasting on the track. As a result I was totally baked. Normally I would just pull the plug but since I got in so little this week I figured I better just suffer through it. Unfortunately I find once my core temp rises that I am toast and that was evident on the second interval at 6:10, 6:23, and 7:22 for a 19:56.... ouch. Never in my life have I bonked so hard in a workout before.
