I have lost all track of days -- I'm in the middle of a LOT of training and barely have enough time to choke down enough food and sleep. I even woke up at midnight one night to eat a bowl of cereal!
There I was sitting on the couch in the dark with my eyes closed trying to wolf down some cereal...Mike is a night owl and was prowling around the kitchen and was surprised to see me up! Hahahahaha!!!
I haven't trained this hard since the Penticton camps...
I've hit some low points on the bike in the wind and rain this week. The superlative doesn't exist to tell you how windy it was on Tuesday. I've never experienced wind like that in my life. Never. Enough said, but I tell you, if I ever hear of somebody whining about wind, I'm going to personally extend him/her an all expenses trip to the Crowsnest Pass...You will NEVER complain about wind again.
When it was safe for me to actually stop and try and unclip, I talked to myself..."Okay, Julie -- don't think, just eat something." Man, that was a tough workout!
Yesterday, I started off the first hour of my ride on my Cervelo, and then the rain started to really blast down. I had hill reps to do, so I switched to my mountain bike and headed up into the muddy mountains.
Sheesh, I'm pooped from typing this. Hahahaha!
As I wrote my coach in an email, I bought $65 worth of Chinese takeout so I wouldn't have to worry about cooking the next few days...
