The vertical axis is hours per week, the horizontal axis is temporal.

spot on...unfortunately. i had a dream last night i ate way too much all the time and got really fat. that definitely qualifies as a nightmare.

i've gained 10 pounds this month, so it's a little scary. have to say, it's been an enjoyable 10 pounds.

thank god i'm not doing cyclocross.

that makes feel better. i gained 10 pounds but its been over 2 months. i gained a bit more than that but i lost it again when i noticed i was a little heavier than necessary.

Only bad thing on the graph is your training peak is at the racing peak... instead of tapering before the racing peak. Otherwise, I think that is how it should be!
