total 22 hrs, 425k
Epic long, cold, very wet winter ride, power test on the turbo
Commutes – 6 (28k each)
turbos – 2 – included an alternative power test –
6*15sec max, 45sec easy – went bonkers 🙂 doing 800-925w max 🙂
2 min max – 352w @ 161bpm
20 min @ 140 – dissapointing 189 @ 144. went to hard immediately – then almost had to soft peddle to get hr down. HR just refused to come down.
5 min max 276w @ 159. This was just hard
another epic long ride. – did my basic essex loop – epping, thaxted, round high easter.
Torrential rain, flooded roads, (worst I’ve ever seen). Eventually lost most of my braking, (lost my rear brake pad – replaced after last week’s epic ride – new rear wheel no scrapped up – oh well)
Full winter kit – new boots were lovely. after 90 minutes, I felt a dribble. after 3 hrs my feet were squclhing, but still warm. At 6 one was going a little numb. Need to look at marrigold watreproofing 🙂
Gloves – bugger – ice cold by the end. had trouble changing into my big ring by the end.
Slow – my assumed speed of 30kph was actually 25kph. Real world speed is slower than IM training speed. hmmm
– 6:15hrs, 155k
1 * easy 30 min run – knee feeling better
2 strength / mobility sessions
solid weeks training. Felt tired on Thursday but back on it by the weekend
