Monday: I didn't sleep during the night due to some strange stomach issues, so I decided to skip my morning brick.

Tuesday: I still had some lingering stomach issues, but went to my swim anyways. I had some really fast 100s during our main set of 6x100 best average. I was happy to be holding 1:10s. It was the first time seeing that number in ages! But as soon as I slowed down, my stomach told me it was time to go home.
Wednesday: An FTP test! First time doing one on a power meter, and it was a truly mentally challenging exercise. From minute 5-10 I was totally ready to gibe up, but I closed my eyes and reminded myself that u could do anything for 10 more minutes. So I powered through the end and my second half was stronger. Its great to have a baseline to work with.
Thursday: I did what was hopefully my last "winter" run. It was just an easy 35 minute recovery run. Then, I finished packing for Florida!
Friday: Departure day and too much to do meant that I skipped my swim and strength workouts. We hit the road at noon for our loooong drive to Florida.
Saturday: A full day spent in the car! We had a nice day for travel, but hit lots of traffic, so despite leaving early we didn't arrive in Clermont til almost midnight.
Sunday: The group did a 42k ride, then we did another 32k to learn the route into and home from downtown Clermont. I followed the ride up with a short 30 minute run for a nice brick to start off training camp. It was gorgeous and a perfect day for riding. The scenery is quite beautiful and I was so,so happy to be on my bike!!!
