This week I learned about some boundaries. You can't know your limits until to transgress them, or try to at least. When I woke up on Saturday I realized I was in trouble. I couldn't walk or talk. I wobbled and couldn't do the easiest of tasks. Yet I still showed up at my training partner's house for my long brick. Thank god he had the sense to tell me to just watch a movie or two.
I did, and it was much needed. I did the same on Sunday, too. It was much needed as well. I was overtrained.
I'm pretty sure it was a matter of intensity rather than volume. I shouldn't be doing intervals so hard I puke this early in the season. I thought it was the heat. It was too much enthusiasm.
So now it's time to pull it back together, and find my rhythm this week.
1.15.00 swim 3500m (1500, 1500, 500)
2.45.00 bike 52 miles with intervals 10x4min
2.18.00 bike, 46 miles
28.00 run, 4 miles
1.00.00 Swim 2800m
6.15.00 bike, 120 miles
1.30.00 11 miles, 4 miles in 25.37
1.15.00, 3000 meters
