Training is going well as I build towards Xterra USA National Champs in Utah (Sept 20). Most of workouts are off-road, so, MTBing or trail running. Lately all my swimming workouts have been in open water. Thankfully the ocean is still warm enough to go for a dip!
Today’s workout: 2 rounds of the following
Swim: 10′ @ easy with TT set to 0.8 . Than set TT to 0.73 and hammer back.
Transition to MTB.
MTB: Ride ~10 minutes on gravel road to Keppoch Mountain. Ride east side trail @ zone 3-4 intensity, ride easy back down Cougar/Chicken, ride west side trail at zone 3-4 intensity and then coast back the mountain and back to the water.
Total workout time was just over 2 hours. Approximately 40 minutes riding in zone 2-4. I had a PB on east side trail by 10 seconds! This was on my second ascent which made it even sweeter!
