I had a great run yesterday. I will post a race report later tonight. It was fun. And I got my chili filled :D.

I thought of this while talking to a friend about some relationship issue he was facing. I can't believe I gave him some pretty good advice (thank God for that). I am like Operah or Dr Phil. hahah..right.

Anyways, keep it short..this coming week is the last week before I end my Base 2 cycle. This also means this week I am training a lot more. Long bike will be reaching 4 hr 4 hr 1 min mark. If there is one week I have to focus, it is this coming week. Get all the trainings done and rest well.

Before I go, I thought of this: Life is like an Ironman.. a lot of sweating and a lot of eating :)

Good luck with this week's training. Just remember that recovery lurks out there as a reward for your hard work.

Cool, over four hours on the bike!

Focus, Cliff, you can do it :)

Four hours on the bike? Man, that deserves a beer!

Cliff said...

Won't be a few weeks now till you're riding outside! I for one, can't wait.

Does that one minute really make a difference, psychologically wise?

Jamie said...

Eating, sweating, um- sounds about right. Suffering too, with a big prize to justify it.

Hilda said...

You are reaching great discipline grades, even at eating!!

Is that 4 hours on trainer? If so good luck. I could not imagine 4 hours spinning.

NEVER compare yourself to Oprah or Dr. Phill!! They're EVIL!! :P

Ha! I love that saying about Ironman and life. So true!

Yikes 4 hours on the bike is so long!!!!!!!! That's awesome! You're training seems to be going really well!

Looking forward to the race report. hey -- just checking: did I miss Bart doing a flip turn yet? :)

And....last but certainly not least. 4 hours on the bike! YOU GO!

Sounds like a fun race, cliff. Man, it does look cold though!

If you've got your nutrition right, long rides are just mental. You don't beat yourself up when your riding so its just a matter of not getting bored. Even when you do it on the roads, I think there's some truth in that.
