Thank you everyone for the enjoyable evening. I very much enjoyed myself, and it seemed like everyone else did as well.
We are five weeks out from the first race. It is go time in terms of hard training. If you want to be fast at the races. Be consistent now. Come now. Work your tail off now. Your race starts tomorrow. Not in 5 weeks.
If the races come and you have not done your work, you will know.
If you have not done your work and you love the races and then you want to work. It will be to late. It is go time now.
This is also totally true for the middle school students who have 5 weeks until the Time Trial Championships. The race starts now.
The next five weeks play out like this:
Week one: VO2 max. Intervals
Week two: VO2 max intervals. After this we should have a fitness bump that will allow us to do even better work in week 3.
Week Three: LT intervals
Week Four: Skills
Week Five: Build into the race.
