Cycle Log: Competition Phase Week 18

Week 18 is the third week of the sixth mesocycle of my Competition Phase (click here for a detailed description of macrocyles, mesocycles and microcycles).  Here are the actual workouts with the plan for the week of August 29 to September 4, 2011 (click here to download my plan for the Competition Phase).

Week of 8/29/11 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal TT Test 1.5 0.5 AR OFF 0.5 AR 0.5 WU Travel RC TT 40K 5.0
Actual 0.75 AR 1.0 AR OFF 0.5 WU 1.0 AR Travel RC TT 40K 5.0


Simply stated, I am running out of gas.  I had tired legs all week.  It’s how I often feel this time of year, which is frustrating because I have two races left.  Fortunately, all of the Active Recovery riding I did helped me recover and I had a good race at the New Mexico Record Challenge 40K Time Trial.  My goal was to set a personal best (1:03:57) but it was a chilly morning with strong winds so that was out of the question.  My finishing time was about 1:06:45 (22.3 mph).  In favorable conditions, I would have probably averaged 23+ mph, which would have been close to my goal.  I have the Arizona State Time Trial Championships next week, which is my final race of the season.  I really do need some rest!  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
