Monday - 1.75 mile pool swim

Tuesday - Cold and windy bike ride (21 miles, 2000 ft)

Wednesday - 16 laps on Mt. Tabor stairs (4 miles, 2400 ft)

Saturday - 1 mile pool swim and 9 miles of biking around town

The training keeps on building. We had no rest days this week, instead we decided to have two easy days surrounding our St. Helens climb, which we knew was going to be a fairly long day. Even with no rest days, our bodies seemed to handle the training load well. Short 15-20 minute naps a couple times a week in the late afternoon are becoming a regular habit though.
