That's the amount of training I've done this week..nada, zero.
On top of that, I've gone out drinking and gorging on grub both Monday and Tuesday. I'll chalk it up as the winter weight to get me through December through February...hey if bears do it, why not us? Plus it makes me feel all warm and soft in the middle.
The treadmill here at work is calling my name...30 minutes of suffering here I come.
This brings up the question of training in general though. Someone like myself spends at most 100 to 200 miles on the bike a week (100 or so on the weekends plus two or three 30ish mile days during the week if I'm lucky)...so why not take advantage and go hard all the time? Is getting 100 base miles a week in really getting yourself ready for the upcoming season? Or is it just wasting time?
I read about guys putting in 300 to 400+ miles a week and I can get how you wouldn't want to hammer every mile of it. Are those the guys snickering in the pack on group rides about "...it's only November and you're going how hard?" or "..it's a long season, don't peak too early...".
Someone out there that's smarter than me should post or write about this. I think us "part-timers" need validation on our training (or lack there-of) techniques.
