Life is like a ten-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use.

Taper - 60 min spin
10 min warm up
10 min Z3 tempo with 5 min Z2 recoveries
Max watts 192/ avg 150

I am feeling REALLY great which can be a good and a bad thing. I've contemplated participating in the Pac Crest Oly triathlon the day after my HIM as a RECOVERY workout. I'm not sure if this is taper talking, a temporary lose of sanity or just my over zealous nature doing what it does best - making me suffer :) Anywho, there is a day before registration if the event doesn't sell out and although AA likes to say it does sell out, it ALMOST never does. So I figure I'll make the decision once I cross that HIM finish line. If it's 95+ on HIM race day I'll probably toss the idea of doing the Oly out the window and rest.

A little insanity is ok!

Sounds like a busy weekend ahead. I checked out the Pac Crest site, and looks like a great time. I haven't figured out what the HIM is, as opposed to the Oly, but nevertheless, I hope it is a gr8 time, and that you do well...I am sure you will. Figured I would go with the Hellz Yea, as I think your mind wants to torture your body a lil more, but listen to your body, and you will know if your up to it. Have a blast, and kick some AZZ :)
