Biking Week

This past week of training has been really good. Weather has cooperated splendidly and I've been able to get out on my bike a whole bunch and start getting in some good base mileage. 

Since last Friday I've ridden 350km. Not all too hard intensity, but enough effort to really put a nice sting in my legs. 

Yesterday and todays rides specifically went really well. Both rides included a trip out to Iona, yesterday I did a solid TT effort and today we met up with a group so for the first half we just sucked into the draft but then people decided to start racing and so I moved up the ranks and sprinted off the front. Was good fun, and legs felt great. 

This probably wasn't the best idea because now my legs are a little toast and tomorrow morning is the Sun Run. However, I'm not too concerned mainly because I don't really care about my result at the Sun Run. I just want to get out there and have fun with my friends. We have a big showing from the UBCTC out there and we will be going for the team title. Anything below 40 minutes and I will be happy. We'll see if thats possible or not after this week of riding.

Anyways. I should get to sleep now. Race is in 9 hours.
