Sunday Training...

Hi

Today's was probably the hardest session I have done. The wind and rain here is terrible so I had to do the whole session on the turbo, all 3 hours of it. I had planned a hard session prior to my recovery/adaptation week, the plan was as follows and I completed it:
  1. 30 minute warmup.
  2. 4 miles at 25 mile TT pace, HR approximately 165.
  3. 10 minute recovery.
  4. 3 miles at 25 mile TT pace, HR approximately 165.
  5. 7 minute recovery.
  6. 2 miles at 25 mile TT pace, HR approximately 165.
  7. 5 minute recovery.
  8. 1 mile at 25 mile TT pace, HR approximately 165.
  9. 30 minute recovery.
  10. Repeat the above.
  11. Complete 3 hour ride in Z2.
The results are shown below:

I was pleased to manage to do slightly better on the 2nd run but I'm ready for my "rest" week now. This was a really difficult session which I hope will give me something to draw on when the going gets tough later in the year.
