Only 4 more weeks of dedicated training before the CX season starts and more CX focused workouts begin. Next week is a rest week and my CTL is 70 right now. No where near the 80 I wanted before the season, but it may climb to 72 before the season if I am lucky.
This was a tiring week combining tough workouts and life-related stress.
Today's CX workout was below my expectations. I felt great last Sunday but not so much today. I felt tired today and was able to get 1 out of 3 of the 10 minute intervals at race pace. I am not sure I could have held that for 45 minutes.
But, even though rest is hard it will pay off considering the next 4 weeks will also be pretty tough.
My new Swiss Top Rat brake pads are fantastic.
