Cycle Log: Competition Phase Week 19

Week 19 is the first week of the seventh mesocycle of my 2012 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 20 to 26, 2012 (click here to download my plan for the Competition Phase).           

Week of 8/20/12 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 1.25 VO2 1.0 AR OFF 1.25 CI 1.0 AR Travel NM/TXTT 6.0
Actual 1.0 VO2 1.0 AR OFF 1.0 TT 1.0 AR 1.5 SS OFF 5.5


I had a very good week although I decided to skip the New Mexico/Texas Regional Time Trial Championships.  I have done this race the last two years and it is a great event; however, I am simply worn out.  Not as much physically as mentally.  I have hit a wall and lost interest in racing.  This happens every season around the beginning of September.  Part of it is the brutally hot summers we have here in the Arizona valley and the other part is the fact that I have been racing since January. I am more than ready for an extended break!  I’ll race one more time at the State TTT/Tandem Championships and call it a season.  The good news is I am near peak fitness.  I had a great VO2 Max Intervals session and an equally great Time Trial Intervals session. My last race is two weeks from today so I have a short (volume) but hard (intensity) week coming up.  As always, I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
