How come every time I've attempted a quality training ride it rains. I just hope that all the other strong guys are getting as little done in these last 2 weeks as I've had. On the plus side I've done lost of rest and recovery which shows in that my resting HR is the lowest it's ever been. Don't be afraid to have at least one short hardish ride this week. Even on Saturday an hour or so easy ride with a couple of very short 85% sprints just to prepare the heart for Sunday. I even do a few sprints in my 45 minute warmup just before going into my starting pen.
