Week 3 - Pushing the Volume a Little Bit

"Ask yourself: 'Can I give more?'. The answer is usually: 'Yes'."
-Paul Tergat, Kenyan professional marathoner 

So my whole goal this week was to push the total hourly volume of all activities combined a little bit with a loose goal of 50 miles running, 100 miles on the bike, and a couple of hours in the weight room.  Needless to say I am tired.  The last 3 nights I have been crashed out for 10 plus hours of sleep each night, which is my body trying to tell me something.  

After 3 solid weeks of over 15 hours, this week I think it is time to schedule in a down or recovery week.  Just not sure what that entails yet.  Thinking I need to cut the total volume down to about 10 easy hours this week, thoughts?  Guess I will just play it by ear.  As I sit here Monday morning my quads are actually sore to the touch so no hills today which is hard because I have MLK day off work and really want to hit my Flagstaff/Green loop like I did yesterday.  

This weeks training.

Took Friday off work and hit the roads on the bike in Lucho's hood.
