Day 18 - June 10, 2009 - Week 2
This week has been ultra low in volume; 1 hr and 49 min thus far. Trying to bring my legs back from the 'beating' they took this Monday. Week 3 will bring back the volume and threshold intensity. I will also be adding ME strength work to the mix and executing a Critical Power test mid-late week. This will allow me to see the effect of ME on my ability to generate more power pre-IML.
Today was shared w/ my man Scott Campbell. He recently took on FL 70.3 and rocked it big. Very proud of him. He will be taking on Latta this weekend and I believe he will have an outstanding race. The clip below is him doing a Quick Brick Intensive in my garage. I love his enthusiasm and willingness to live out 'racing specificity' by donning the 'retro helmet' as he called it; circa 1990s. You the man bro!
(1) In the next few days/weeks I will be laying out what I have and will be taking regarding supplements/multi-vitamins/recovery aids, etc. I am doing everything I can to promote recovery amongst the heavier weeks of training that lie ahead. Many thanks to my good friend Cody Angell at TrySports (www.trysports.com) for assisting me w/ this aspect of things. You can't find a cooler cat/guy. Phenomenal runner w/ mad skills. Representing at Du Wordls in 2009 (in his first attempt)!
Enjoy the day troops...
