This week overall was a pretty easy week.  I did not have any long sessions but instead focused on building power. Plus I got distracted by the unseasonably warm weather and had to workout outside a few days!  My Saturday ride was during the windiest part of the day and I tried a lot of leg exercises during the ride (a lot of one leg pedaling) to build up the necessary strength that I believe I am lacking in order to get faster and better.

This week I will hopefully put in some more long miles with some long rides and runs.  The training will begin to ramp up now leading into the height of my spring season.  So far my training is going well, but in the weeks to come it will become more structured as I go from the base phase into the race specific training.
