total 20.5 hrs, 330k
2 * turbos
Commutes – 6 (28k each)
Long Ride – icy on Saturday morning, so out came the rollers.
5 hr ride on Saturday
Got the hang of the rollers OK, so I could drink from a bottle by the end of my 2 hr session. However I found it hard to change position so my arse was killing me. Changing shorts on the hour helped, Basically kept hr at my endurance pace – 129bpm and 90 rpm cadence, and then tried to hold that power. Jumped on the turbo for the last 2 hours – again just steady state stuff, holding the same power, I was working hard by the end, (ie my heart rate is drifting at a set power – I am not that fit yet and there is loads more work to do on basic aerobic fitness.
Long ride just felt hard / a struggle. Forecast biblical weather did not really turn up on Sunday. and it was good to be out. Weather did hit just before my ride decision point, so I headed home – ended up tacking on as the weather changed and the sun came out
Need to plan some new routes.
1 * easy 30 min run
2 strength / mobility sessions
Reasonable weeks training. Nice to have options when the weather is rubbish
Pondering what to do with my commutes – I am feeling flat / tired on my commutes and turbos – I am struggling to go easy on my commutes – so many people to out accelerate!
However if I cant ride 55k a day, how can I ride 300!
