finding my groove

It's been over five months since I got the rug pulled out from beneath me and I am finally getting my confidence back. Life stress is not good for peak performance, especially if it comes during a high training and racing stress period. For great gains to be made you gotta get in a groove and knock back the training blocks without really thinking about it. You get your routines set and kinda go on autopilot. Then when you are on the bike or in the gym you can give your undivided attention to 100% effort. Yesterday I did a five hour ride with some sprint work at the end. I was able to crack off >1000 watts 17 times all the while taking Katie to the next level. That said I'm super motivated to have my best winter yet, enjoying coaching more than ever, and looking forward to an awesome 2009.
