Very Good Signs
It's been a very busy couple of weeks since the Silver Rush, but training seems to be on target. After the Silver Rush, I've been reducing the volume and cranking up the intensity with some very good results. Climbed very well on the Tuesday ProCycling hammer fests. Joined the Acacia Park group ride (Colorado Springs' equivalent to what other towns call their "A" ride) and climbed with the leaders, getting my heart rate to the highest this year! Runs have been high quality, running mile intervals and tempo runs at "faster than I though I could" pace, feeling pretty comfortable. Less than a week to go for the final chapter of this great adventure!
