AM: 6.7 miles, averaged 9:48. HR 147.

Air quality was absolutely awful. Probably should have stayed inside the last two days and not had the boys outside, but they really love being outside right now. Felt decent today. Starting to feel a good bit better. Forcing myself to eat. I think part of the issue is I have been nervous about the race, but also very anxious about our Maine trip next week. Dad's health is getting worse and everything is challanging right now. Fortunately, I am off for the summer other than an online class in July/August, which I am very thankful for.

Air quality has been absolutely awful but I went outside anyway. Did 2 x 10' at race effort and then a 5' at race effort because I went down a road that hit a busy highway. Called it mostly good from there. Did attack a 2' segment and came close, but was still 3 seconds off. Felt pretty good after my ride. The boys sang happy birthday to my mother, which was a good memory.

Felt absolutely awful and shut it down. My body and legs felt as if I couldn't move. Not enough calories. Wobbled down our street a little bit and was a bit dizzy. I think this was the day/afternoon my anxiety was absolutely brutal. I worked through it but was almost not able to function. Stuttering and shaking.

5 x 5' (3')

Tried a shorter but more intense inteveral session for race week. Want them to be around 340-350, but I haven't been able to eat much, so I think that was part of why I was a little weaker. Averaged 332 watts. HR was not that high but breathing was tough.

5 x 20" strides. Rested in the morning in bed to lessen the anxiety and squeezed this in even though it was my time to be with the boys.

Off.

Anxious. This day or Saturday we were going to try to get the boys in the stroller to see if they would cooperate, but I was in such a state of anxiety I coudn't get the chuck to work to air up the tires.
