Kirtsen - Better to have that week now that closer to the race. Well done on getting you 16 miles in.
I had a good LSR today. The rain went off after the first couple of miles so only had the wind to contend with. I managed to complete my 18 miles with an average pace of 9:37 m/m, which is closer to my normal LSR speed than I've been able to do so far in training. The most positive part being not only was the pacing a bit better, but I finished feeling strong too. It's been a good weeks running for me.
Congratulations Eggy! That's fab news. You were due some good training. I've had a good training week too, all things considered. Today's LSR felt much stronger. I went 2 kms longer than last week and was 20 seconds faster per km. Nothing to sneeze at, but not as quick as you.
An absolutely bloody splendid day here in Belgium! LSDs done for me and TD. I am reliably informed this is not a hallucinogen, but rather a "Long Slow Distance" in cycling parlance. 31km LSR for me, 120km-ish for TD. Followed by recovery beer on the balcony lying in the sun. Does it get any better?
