6 mile tempo run at zone 4+ for race simulation. Last run before tapper!

Night shift!  6 mile run this morning when I got home.  Strong wind so it was hard to get my tempo and HR steady.  It was a good run (race tempo) and beat my expectations.

I'm officially beginning my tapper now!  First HM is one week from... Right now!

Nice spin after work. Mostly steady state but some out of the saddle.

Went to gym again on the way home.  Turn a one hour spin into 1.5 hours, it felt good.  Except for that stationary bike saddle of course!  Didn't get into the bed until 10am but slept good, up at 3:30 with the alarm.

Diet is coming around.  Sure hard to get 70% carbs when you've eaten for muscle gain for years.  Cut out the eggs and replace with oat meal and toast was a big help.

Back on night shift for two nights, one off, seven on.  Geez, it's killer!  Missed my first run of the week because I chose to eat Mexican food and sit on my butt watching football.  So, 6am run when I get off work in the morning.

Will sneak off and get in some stretching in tonight.  Feeling a little tight.

Not entering nutrition for the day.  No telling what the Mexican food was...
