My pre-season training has been filled with goals that were obtained, motivation to train inside when the weather was bad and a well planned training outline focusing on base miles, aerobic base and muscular strength and endurance. My septoplasty surgery was a quicker recovery than expected and I was back training a week ahead of my best case plan. I also managed to avoid any injury or illness through this pre-season.
This last week I was just unable to get on the bike and train. A lot of work and a lot of other stuff going on. So I was forced to essentially extend my time off the bike from surgery another week. It is just a mild set back since I had intention of being off the bike this long any way. So I will have an opportunity to start training again tomorrow and get back on plan. I should still be on pretty good form and probably didn't lose very much in these three weeks off.
Only time will tell and I am excited about the racing season.
