Training Journal 2/18-2/24

Monday, February 18- Sunday, February 24, 2013: Got a cold this week and found myself struggling with tired legs (and lungs) many of the days.  It all culminated in finally taking a day off the next week despite my feeling that I didn't need a day off because my mileage is still not very high, uhhhh I did reach 80 miles this week, which is on the low end of "high" for me. When it comes down to it though, your body dictates the day (s) off and it's really better not to over think it, a common problem of mine.  Stupid brain!
All bundled up for a ride on the road.
Monday: 36 mile bike ride Chuckanut drive, Galbraith. this ride killed me. Oh, yeah--I haven't biked since before HURT I've been traveling so much...

Saturday: 10 miles, interurban, boulevard, Sehome loop. 900 ft/climb. Felt very low energy.  Feeling a cold, but not sure if that's why?
