this saturday i did my last long and hard session leading into the rotterdam marathon in 2 weeks. my, at the moment injured, training partner markus paced me on the bike. we went out for 100 minutes in marathon pace with a drink every 20 minutes and gels like planned in the race. after my last test in florida last week this run gave me confidence in a solid marathon. for the next weeks its time to relax and get some short hard sessions in.
on sunday i restored my bike. the weather was still good so shane and i decided to hit the road with an easy spin. this was my first bike ride this year. it felt good and the weather was on our side. no rain.
