So how is the exercise program going?
Went to the gym today. Banged out 21.30 for 6 km on the ergo at max resistance. Then hit the climbing wall and problem solved for 30mins...ended up with a tricky 6B. I'm enjoying climbing again, even if it is top roped and short..still excellent mental and physical work.
Dynamic core strengthening was next. Now? well now i feel wabbit.
Buuuuuuuuut. There is the hint of a little steeliness there. Somewhat of a tempering going on. The rowing was better. Hit full capacity at 450m out and managed to maintain a fair clip.
My issue is i have no base miles in the legs. Its 9 weeks 'til the Finale solo 24 and i reckon i'd be lucky if i could handle a 100 miles mixed at the moment, let alone with sleep deprivation and gradient thrown in.
Yet again the forecast for this week end is bitter winds, severe with 80+mile gusts and snowfall with white out conditions possible from 800m up. Rough. Not perfect for rolling lots of miles.
So mixed feelings. Still, as long as i can increase the miles steadily, without getting ill, i may just squeeze some form out.
