2.5 hrs yesterday. Basically a recovery ride post surgery but aside from my legs being rusty I was really pleased with my improved breathing. New experience with a cager, I have experienced everything from a bullhorn to gunning it right next to me but yesterday was the first time one actually chucked a full water bottle at me. Glad he missed because it was cold out and would have hurt.

1;20 on the trainer the other day. 30 minutes spinning then 3x10 minutes low cadence 90% FTP. That put a little burn in the muscles.

i love low cadence work, it helps so much, but man my Achilles always is so ****ing sore after doing it for the first time in a long time.

60 minutes of easy spinning.

3:40 solo. Good ride. Hit 3 decent climbs. The legs were good, but my left arm is still junk. Basically road one-handed the entire way. Every time I hit even a small bump it was like shanking a ball off an aluminum baseball bat. That part sucked, but getting in a good ride was nice. The CX race this weekend is a no-go. Just can't do it. I tell you, I've got a new appreciation for that guy Joe who rides with Psimet. He must be an absolute freaking animal.

2x20 on the hotel gym exercise bike. This was a bigger mental challenge than physical.

thechemist 12-28-12 04:32 PM

1:30 roughly zone 4 in cold rain. Reminds me I need better booties

45' on the trainer, then 45' out in the hills in some great weather (no cold weather gear needed). I have had to wear arm warmers 3 times this winter though. This climate is nice this time of year...

On my ride this morning. 7am, had been riding for an hour. A little chilly, but damn, what a view.

2 hour recovery today. Internet back online after moving. Feeling strong again and down to 154 pounds. Tomorrow is the first time I will go out on the fast group ride since being in base mode for a couple of months. That will tell me a lot about my fitness me thinks.

mattm 12-28-12 06:46 PM

3:45 today with some fast guys. And it didn't even rain!

jsutkeepspining 12-29-12 01:02 PM

110 miles. I'm sleepy

kensuf 12-29-12 01:11 PM

2 hours today. Longest ride since the first week of November.

Is your saddle too high? I've been doing a lot of this kind of work lately and it has affected the chondromalacia in my knees more than anything. It's all good though. A bottle of vodka and a jar of Aleve takes care of everything.

jsutkeepspining 12-29-12 01:48 PM

nope, seems about right (fitted, and no pain in the front or back of the knee). I dont really know why, but it always happens the first time i do low cadence work after a long break from it (In this case a month).

shovelhd 12-29-12 01:55 PM

That makes sense. It's a lot of stress.

jsutkeepspining 12-29-12 02:04 PM

yeah, its funny how much "harder" it is to hold a certain wattage when you're rolling around at 50-60 rpms. It's great training, but man does it hurt!

shovelhd 12-29-12 02:07 PM

But it's over quick.

thechemist 12-29-12 02:14 PM

Out in the snow for a little over an hour. Forgot how awful snow feels on the face at speed.

sstang13 12-29-12 03:46 PM

Just finished a 10 x 3 min at 110% FTP ride again, tough but I was very happy with the numbers. Junk was numb at the end of the 1:15 ride, that didn't feel good.. but a quick readjustment fixed everything :thumb:
