Cycle Log: Competition Phase Week 14

Week 14 is the second week of the fifth mesocycle of my Competition Phase for the 2013 racing season (click here for a detailed description of macrocycles, mesocycles and microcycles). Here are the actual workouts with the plan for the week of April 15-21, 2013 (click here to download my plan for the Competition Phase).

Week of 4/15/12 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 1.75 HI 1.25 HCR OFF 1.5 SM FT OFF 1.5 HCS OFF 6.0
Actual 1.25 HCS 1.25 HCS OFF 1.5 HCS OFF OFF 1.25 HCS 5.25


I have made a decision. I will not participate in the Mt. Lemmon Time Trial or the South Mountain Time Trial this year. As much as I love these events, I have not had the time to train properly. In fact, I haven’t ridden outdoors since the Senior Olympics in early March. I continue to maintain my fitness on the indoor trainer and stationary bike, but I don’t have the high level fitness required for serious climbing. Oh well, at least business is good! I’ll continue to train regularly and I will get back outside in early May when my book manuscript is complete (I’m writing a book titled The Business of Training and Coaching for DSW Fitness). I’ll have plenty of time to prepare for the summer and fall races/events. As always, I’ll let you know how it goes. Have a great week!
