2:10 z2 this afternoon - rained little or none in the 2 weeks I didn't ride and today it decided to rain right before my ride...it wasn't bad though

caloso 11-13-12 06:19 PM

90' @ z2 this morning. Finally got my act together enough to leave the house in time to get in a decent ride before work.

what big event(s) are you training for, jsut?

sounds like you have an ambitious plan this year, and i'm genuinely curious as to your targets.

Enjoy! I think almost all of the roads are back to normal (except for the section by the river between Piermont and Nyack).

35-min FTP test. Looks like i'm where I was in early January of last year.

1:20 riding last night. mostly easy.

Creatre 11-14-12 08:20 AM

1hr spin last night, 30min spin tonight. Recovery week. :)

Ultraslide 11-14-12 08:46 AM

1:05 last night on the rollers. z4 intervals 5x6x2. First time I used the "Workout" feature on my Edge 500. Pretty cool.

Derailed over the last couple of weeks. With a combination of colder weather (and me being wimpy), some odd back and neck pain, and my daughter starting basketball season I have found it extremely easy to miss workouts. I've jogged some been on the bike a little but not as much as I should. I also have been eating too much and not as well as I should :o

haven't totally figured it out yet. i know i want to try to get my 1 upgrade next year, as well as try to do something at the bigger races near me. I also have nationals, states, and a couple of local races that are kind of important to me.

shovelhd 11-14-12 11:28 AM

When s your first race?

jsutkeepspining 11-14-12 11:42 AM

probbaly mide-late febuary or early march at the latest

Virten 11-14-12 07:03 PM

Did squats yesterday. Woke up with sore legs and biked 68 miles. Legs are super sore now..

johnybutts 11-14-12 07:12 PM

1:10 of riding. mostly easy.

Fat Boy 11-14-12 07:49 PM

8 times up the my local 1' hill. I alternated between big gear (53/13) and higher cadence (85-90 rpm). I was going to do 10 times up the hill, but at 8 I had to call it or fall off my bike. My HR was at least a good 10 bpm low. I was doing RPE 18-19 for a minute and never even hitting Z5 on HR. I'm starting to over-reach, for sure. 1 more hard ride on Saturday and then a rest week.

Fat Boy 11-14-12 10:48 PM

Oh ya, duh. Day 9 of a 10 day cycle of Augmentin for an ear infection probably isn't helping the HR response, either.

veloboy971 11-15-12 08:34 AM

1:20 mostly ez yesterday morning. Legs finally starting to feel less stiff - nearly the same avg watts yesterday as the day before felt way easier. Today will be time to ramp it up a bit more.

Virten 11-15-12 08:44 AM

Off day...I'm guessing till Sunday to allow my legs to fully heal.

I get asked everyday why I limp so bad...
Side effect of being in shape I guess.

Epsom salt bath and ground flaxseed are your friends.

shovelhd 11-15-12 09:20 AM

Day off.

Ultraslide 11-15-12 09:42 AM

1:15 of z1 plus some force reps thrown in. Watched Trollhunter on Netflix. TROLL!
