Weekly Recap 11/20

Recovery week 2 post-Monumental Marathon. Last week I was still riding a bit of an emotional high from the race, but it faded this week and I probably got the rest I actually needed.

Weekly Recap Sept. 25

My post-race recovery week mileage is now higher than my max mileage from a year ago. WHOA. It was a good week for recovery since my schedule was off-kilter.
