Well it’s usually about this time when I return to training that my legs lose their freshness and realize that it’s time to get adjust to training again, and right on schedule the middle of the week got tough. It also coincided with a vast amounts of hills courtesy of a short trip out to Bainbridge Island (an unreasonably hilly and scenic island in the Puget Sound) to visit the family. At this changeover point in a cycle it’s important to make sure that soft tissue issues don’t creep up on you and that you’re dedicating adequate time to sleep until your body adapts to the training load. To this end, I’ve been incorporating a mid day siesta into my routine and the extra sleep has been paying off.
