So why post what I did last week?
The week started with a rest day on Monday.
Tuesday was a double: trail run in Newlands Forest in the morn. Swim squad in the afternoon.
Wednesday was easy with only a swim.
Thursday another double with trail run up Mowbray Ridge in the morn and swim in the afternoon.
Friday easy swim. Just turning over.
Saturday was the Lion of Africa half marathon.
Well it was a pretty big week for me this year. Not in volume but intensity. Especially considering that the 85km Roller Coaster bike race on Sunday was pretty hard.
I admit that I am pretty tired this week and need to recover properly before I build again.
For me the crux is finding the right volume that I can maintain for a couple of weeks rather than do a massive week and then recover for a week repeat. Intensity is key!
This week would have been fine if the intensity were lower. But hey I was wanting to race my bike and keep up with the boys at the half! I only succeeded at one of those..
