Not really sure why I’m posting this but just hoping I’m not alone.
This past week was my last week of build, so I expected it to be tough. But last weekendi think I dug myself in a hole that I just couldn’t get out of this week.
Last Sunday I decided to do an outdoor ride and complete a personal goal of climbing 10,000+ ft. Of elevation. I did 100 mile ride and completed my goal. Figuring I’d just push all my workouts back one day since I have a rest week coming up. Well I’ve failed to complete every workout to follow. Each workout has shown improvement but I’m feeling discouraged to say the least.
Obviously looking back, I should have at least waited to do my outdoor ride on the last day before my recovery week.
So now I’m worried that I’ve somehow lost strength and fitness because I’ve struggled so much this week. A week prior my workouts were pretty manageable and I was feeling great.
