Inside Plans

8:10 AM - BSC - Bike, 1:00:00.
8 x 2:30 @ 85-90% effort w/2:30 recovery.

I wish I had more to write -- or more time to write, rather -- so I'll get right down to the serious business of training talk and save all the funny foolishness for an entry that may never see the PUBLISH POST button.

Got back on the bike this morning for a solid spin session in an effort to give my legs an extra day to bounce back before pounding the pavement again first thing tomorrow. I have a short session of 1-minute pickups on tap, as Kevin and I chatted for a bit this morning and laid out a primitive plan for the next couple weeks, culminating with 5,000 meters on the track at Harvard on February 22.

That's right, indoor track. I had no designs on racing around the ol' 200-meter oval this winter but both Kevin and I concluded that this will give us an accurate idea of where my fitness level lies, if nothing else. I'm kinda nervous, a little anxious but most of all just very excited to finally race again.

I have a bad feeling that I had something to do with planting the idea in your head to do a race. My sincere apologies for the pain you will endure.
