Building for part two of the season Posted on 7/27/2011 9:35:12 AM
Building for part two; that is exactly what I have been doing for the past three weeks now, building up some shape for the second part of the season. I have been doing good training on the bike with different kind of efforts, power-training etc, and combined this with some time in the gym.Go to Blog home Edit Entry
I have not done this before in the middle of the season..it’s been a long time since I saw the gym from the inside. I don’t know but I have always been thinking that I can do everything on a bike, maybe I’m wrong. Anyway I have been giving this a try and we’ll see if it’s working for me.
I got company from my friend, and old “classmate” at the academy for the past three days at the sessions and it has been good. It’s great to speak a few words between the efforts and catch up a bit, then when it’s time to turn the screw nobody wants to be the guy who’s been halfwheeled...
Before this period of training I had the Nationals and one of my main goals for the season, the 50km time trial. I finished third after a good effort and was just beaten by winner Gustav Larsson (Team Saxobank – Sungard) and Thomas Lövkvist (Team Sky). A result I’m proud of!
The Nationals was followed by a complete week off the bike spend with my family in Gothenburg’s archipelago. We had a great week with good weather and I really enjoyed my time there.
This month and a bit in Sweden have been great and did me good. I feel motivated and ready for part two…bring it on!
