My 8th day of camp was a good one. I felt the best I have since day 1. I think taking yesterday was good for me both mentally and physically. I began camp with a 9 mile run followed by speed drills and strides. I then went to the pool for 4,000 yards of swimming with some hard intervals mixed in. At 5:00 I began the weekly group ride which takes place every Wednesday night in the QC. This is always a tough ride with lots of surging, breakaways, sprints, and high speeds. We went 50 miles and had some stretches of 10+ miles where we averaged over 26 mph. After the ride I went to our high school and lifted 2 sets of 12 on all my lifts. I finished camp this evening with a 3 mile run followed by lunges, core work, claw drill, and stretching.
