    6x3's at over 115%. i hit my target on all but the last one....114%. Fitness doesn't suck, but the trainer deffinitly zaps a lot of that anaerobic power.

    2hr w/ 5x4min @ max. Winds were 30-40mph. Almost died like 10 times. I'm too light for wind and 50mm carbon wheels. Was awesome.

    For those that still track such things, what TSB do you try & have going into a race? A vs B races?

    Also, when/if you take rest weeks, do you keep same volume w/ less intensity or less volume w/ same intensity?

    Thanks.

    Yea, it was nasty here yesterday and more mild today but I am hoping to get out in roughly 20mph wind tonight

    That's the stuff.

    I did a slight variation on that theme this morning. It's nice that it fits pretty exactly a Breaking Bad episode on Netflix.

    I have no idea how anyone can do hard interval workouts on the trainer while watching something new. At tempo or lower, sure, but once I'm over threshold I need to really concentrate on what I'm doing or I'll slack off. I'm quite jealous of you guys who can do it!

    It's taken a little practice. I have Golden Cheetah on the laptop to show me a graph and my instant wattage/cadence/hr. I have my iPad with Netflix next to it. And the 5' intervals I've been doing are sub-LT. More SST.

    A races, zero. B races, who gives a crap.

    Less of both. Much less. It's supposed to be rest.

    FWIW, I crashed in my own driveway on Saturday.

    Did an FTP Test last night, it went great! Everything this year except for a week of sickness has been going perfectly, including breaking through a plateau I've been at for..ever. All of my training definitely paid off during the test. My last FTP was 247..with a 3.40 w/kg. My goal was to hit 280 watts avg. for the ride. With the training of this year mixed with better pacing this test and just everything falling into place + a bit of luck I ended up hitting 286 watts, giving me a new FTP of 272 and 3.68 w/kg !! I don't know how good this is to you guys (I'm sure jsut is laughing with his abnormally high 400(?) FTP..lol) but I'm pretty d**m happy with this!

    1:45 tonight 4x10 @ FTP.. just what I wanted after a FTP test. It hurt, but whatever. I'm still happy, and hungry.

    1 hr tonight on the new bike. still dialing position. mostly good, but a couple things still need work. I hate switching bikes in the middle of the season, but c'est la vie.
    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.

    2.5 hours, was going to do a 20' interval but didn't pace it right so it became 2x10'.

    First one was 302w (~4.3 w/kg, weak I know!), second one sucked.

    -30 TSB, probably time to rest up. Luckily it's raining tomorrow so that should make it easy.
