I have a "please help me" thread in the 41 so I'm just venting here.
I suck at creating a training schedule that addresses all the things I want to do well next season. The last three weeks were spent preparing for that half at the sacrifice of valuable riding time. Going out for the "fun" club crit tonight showed me just how ill-advised that was.
My swim training is pretty high quality these days...but now that the half is done, I haven't run a single time all week.
There are lots of great books on this, I know; I've read a few of them. This is just about getting my head on straight and fixing the situation!
So, here's to balance (or a complete, total, utter lack thereof) in training: be awesome at one thing and suffer at all else...or be average at everything. Ugh.
