To be honest, I haven't been eating well lately. We've had someone living with us and though we love her very much her presence has disrupted our normal routines. Part of what that means is that my eating patterns have been much harder to control and unfortunately I've regained a taste for foods I should be avoiding. It hasn't been tragic, but it hasn't been good.
One implication of this reality, though, is that I've really been dogging on my bike. I don't have adequate glycogen stores and other things my body needs to preform well and it's showing. So starting yesterday I decided to get dead serious again about the nutrition part of my training and I hope to see tangible results in the near future.
By the way, the five aspects of my cycling training are these:
Recovery (post-ride routines)
It turns out that each of these aspects is vitally important! Hopefully, with God's help, I'll be able to turn things around now.
