This week I have been concentrating on the mountain bike since my first mtb race of the season is Sunday. Sunday I pre-rode the course, my riding was terrible. It took me 2:10 to ride a 17 mile course. I went out Monday and rode the mountain bike about 21 miles and worked on my handling and chasing a faster rider around, did much better. Tuesday I went back and pre-rode the course again. My time was 1:34, much better! That was four minutes faster than my best time last year.
Yesterday I was on the trainer. I had to do 3x20 minutes hr zone 3 (150 - 155 bpm) with five minute recoveries. I was actually pretty happy with the outcome. First interval - 278 watt average, second interval 290 watt average, third interval 274 watt average.
Today is a rest day. Tomorrow I'll get on the trainer for about an hour and do 4x90 seconds at cp30 (297 watts) and do the rest at about 175 watts to prepare for Sunday's race.
I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
