    Today, to me, felt like the ideal recovery day. 35 minutes of easy conversational riding around the neighborhood with Mrs. Canvas, checking out a dead end road I've always been curious about, then some mellow yoga.

    Two good days of wind and climbing in Orange County on a short family vacation. Really pleased that I was able to set a 15s season high. Was going to do a recovery day, but the TSB is only at -9 and I'm feeling good.

    Yep. I equated "rest" with "recovery", but resting legs does not necessarily equal recovering, in the same way that leaning your bike against the wall and resting it does not equal repairing it. I could rest my legs all day long, but if I don't get hydration, sleep, nutrition, and generally relax (not just the legs) then the body can't repair ****. Maybe "repair" is a better word than recovery.

    On a related note, I recently learned that alcohol inhibits glycogen storage, protein synthesis and hydration, and lowers testosterone. It might even be worse than ultimate frisbee!

    Nothing is worse. Ultimate frisbee is a gateway drug.

    Overcooked a ZCI™ workout today, failing on number 5. Great workout up to that point.

    I will anyway. Recovery rides should be less than one hour. If you are on a recovery day and your commute is 20 miles you don't commute. TSS should be 25 or less. If terrain makes that tough then shorten the ride to hit the target. The biggest thing to remember is that recovery means rest. You have the green light to be a lazy ass. Take advantage of it.
    I usually do recovery rides on rollers that are 1.0 hours spinning at normal cadence and power in L1. TSS is typically high 20s.

    This is why I won't do Paleo. According to that philosophy, grains are bad; beer is made from grains, so it follows that beer must be bad. No beer = a bridge too far, at least for this Irish-American. Gotta maintain some quality of life!

    Team Recovery Ride. Was third wheel back when the guy in front of me swerved out of the way, exposing a 2' x 2' sinkhole directly in front of me. I got around it, but was pretty pissed. I couldn't see the bottom of that hole and my front wheel almost went in it. I normally don't expect people to call out debris, but that was a real hazard. 35 tss.

    My hamstring locked up the other day, now I have a massive hematoma. It feels okay, so I'm not overly concerned.

    I'm REALLY TIRED of doing intervals in 40 degree weather, but that's what I'll be doing this evening. Sigh. It's the end of April, it should be around 70 degrees by now! Anyway. Some brutal pyramids planned. Being a coach must require a certain degree of sadism. Of course, I keep doing what he tells me to.

    You mean TSS?

    I've never done an RR that was steady enough to end up with SST..
