I haven’t posted in awhile and that’s mainly because I’ve been hitting some high volume training in the past 3 weeks – this week ended up at 26.75 hours. This seems like a lot to me now but I have a feeling this will probably be normal for me in the near future. My highest previous weekly total was 23.75 hours.
In other news, the United States passed Russia in the men’s Olympic rankings to move into eighth place after Matt Reed’s tenth place finish today at the Madrid World Cup. The top eight nations get to send three athletes to the Olympics so good job Matt! There is only one more race to score Olympic points and that is the World Championships in Vancouver in two weeks. Matt has been racing like a champ all year so I’m pretty confident the United States can hold onto this position.
