Here is a summary of my training over the past week.
Bad week, with muscle punctures. Although it started well, with 70 minutes progressive - regressive cycling on Monday. With a maximum peak of 888W and in the main period of higher intensity 378W on average during the last 2 minutes of the progressive part.
On Tuesday, after doing some soft rolling 40 minutes, with some side and backstroke intervals.
On Wednesday I rested, and it was on Thursday when the injury arrived. I was supposed to do 20x100m at a sprint pace, but in the ninth I got a puncture in the lower part of the femoral biceps. Luckily, it was only a warning that could be recovered with rest and patience.
So for the rest of the week I took it easy, just a day of swimming in open water at a gentle pace, with hardly any use of my legs.
Now it's time to recover and start this coming week with calm, to recover well for the next competition which is on August 14.
And with that... thanks for reading!
