Last week all of my workouts were short, BUT my coach scheduled 3 days of steady state intervals. These intervals are my LEAST favorite to do, which means that they are probably really good for me to do. If I had my way I would want to do long mountain bike rides every day...but that won't make me stronger/faster.
|Even though I do intervals on pavement I always take the dirt road home!|
|Completely whacked out...|
There's a lot going on this week, but all good stuff. I'm going to be talking about the Yeti Beti Bash with the race director this coming Wednesday on Girls and Gears. The show will be live at 8 p.m. E.S.T...HERE IS THE DIRECT LINK to the show! The Yeti Beti Bash looks like a great event on so many levels. First of all, it's the largest women's mountain bike event in the country. Secondly, they have freaking Noosa yoghurt sponsoring the pre-ride. I...love...Noosa, especially the lemon flavor. There's a bunch of other cool things that they have planned for the weekend and we will cover it all...so be sure to tune in. And speaking of Mountain Bike Radio, there are 7 days left to order this Simply Ride Tee. I definitely have one coming :-)
Then this weekend I'm racing the Hanson 50/100 miler. I'm doing the 50 miler and I have to admit that it feels weird not signing up for the 100 miler. But doing the 50 miler will allow me to put in a good hard effort without needing so much time for recovery. That way I can keep training for Lumberjack...which is going to be here before I know it. Agggghhhhh!
