This is my second week back in Austin, first week was basically a rest one (only did 3hrs of riding including a Driveway race). This week has me embarking upon a 4 -week training program provided by Nick Flyger to help me gain more speed and taper for my events in Taiwan. I have seen some encouraging signs this week, including good power outputs in the Driveway race yesterday. I had some good 20min and 5min power figures that bode well.
It is also my last two weeks here in Austin as Jennifer and I will be flying out on August 18th for Reno where we are visiting family in Winnemucca for four days. I'll be doing some altitude training. We'll be heading down to Salt Lake City to attend the USANA International Convention and there is a down-town city criterium race on the 23rd August which is perfect timing to brush up race skills and keep the legs on the razor edge before the Games.
