    Max outs for 2 minutes, then 3 minute rest. A set is three intervals. Two sets, 5-8 minutes between sets. For me, I'll try to sustain 160-200W, which for me is a lot.

    Best wishes for your workout plans, hopefully these will get you ready for the long anticipated GAP ride you want to do.

    Thanks, Bill. I think I'm benefitting from it. Tomorrow should be interesting in that I have classic HIIT and then I'm supposed to go to work all day. We'll see.

    My decision to do the century on the Redbud Ride will be where the rubber HIITs the road, so to speak. It will be by far the toughest cycling day I've ever had. The GAP will seem calm by comparision.

    I just looked up the Rosebud Redbud Ride , and it looks like it would be a nice venue for a Fifty-Plus Annual Ride--central location, seemingly easily accessed accomodations, and varied route distances. I do all my training outdoors on my commute though, and don't start doing increased mileage until April (Ride is April 11-13), and most Fifty-Plus subscribers seem to prefer a summer Ride, e.g. July 26 in Boston.

    I just programmed my iPad for 3XO/U 3/1 8 minutes. I have no idea what that means but I do it next week.

    Today was SEPI 2 minutes X3, 2 sets. I tried to run up to but just short of puking. At least it's more interesting than 90 minutes of mindless EM which is scheduled tomorrow.

    Just think of the monster you will be when all this is done! And keep up the good work.
    And I did it all clean.

    I really and truly suffered yesterday in my own strange way, I took a day off on purpose, not weather related. It was actually a beautiful day, sunny and temps were in the mid 50's with a little wind. I just wanted a down so I set chocks and folded wings, watched as much original Law and Order as possible and took care of Monica, she is coming down with a cold and felt rotten. I'm fine and today is beautiful, weather wise. I'm going out as soon as I log off after reading the new posts.

    I hear ya, Bill.

    Yesterday was clear and sunny and up into the 40s so it felt tropical. I had to work all day. It was killing me. When I got home, I sat in my recliner, closed my eyes and lost consciousness.

    This AM I was tired. I'm going to try to do yesterday's workout today if all goes well.

    Ok. 90 minutes of trainer down the tubes. I never would have dreamed I'd do this on a stupid trainer. 90 minutes on a trainer is like four dog years.

    Wednesday: O/U. Doubt they're be as bad as barfomatics.

    Keep up the hard work Dudelsak. I enjoy reading the updates of your journey. Last Thursday after work I ate early, sat down for a few minutes then crashed watching Jepordy and did not do my scheduled interval (barfamatic) workout on the rollers. I did it on Friday AM along with my core/resistance work then dragged through the rest of the day.

    Thanks, AJ. It's not exactly training for the Masters Nats, but for me it's a stretch.

    The schedule calls for 4 hours of riding this weekend. The weather will be abysmal, and my trainer's saddle is beginning to really annoy me, so I broke down and did this:



    Unlike my Lemond, it was a royal pain getting it on the trainer. It'll be interesting to see if it aggregates my LBP.

    Here's something to work on. It's a good form of distraction too.

    Works for me.

    That's a pretty Lemond. Rare are the contemporary bikes that catch my eye but that one is a looker. Is that a CF or Aluminum?

    I take it by the way you have your bars back that your neck gives you problems riding uprights. Is that why you prefer the recumbent ?

    I know since I started back I seem to have more trouble descending in a crouch and keeping my head up at it. I keep wanting to nod my head up and down to see where I'm going.

    Two hours on a trainer. It's sunny and high 40s right now, so it is very rideable outside, but I had dragged the dumb bent downstairs and I wasn't going to drag it up for one day, only to drag it back down tomorrow because we're supposed to get rain mixed with snow tomorrow and I'm not riding in it.

    So.

    The electronics didn't make sense. For the same speed, the power outputs were down. Since the power is derived from the speed, I don't see how a change in bikes should make a big difference. It's based on the speed of the roller, not the speed of the wheel.

    Interestingly, the heart rate sided with the power, not the speed.

    There are muscles deep in the glutes that don't get used much on a DF, but they get used a lot when you ride a bent, and right now those muscles are informing me I might not be able to walk tomorrow.

    My unit calibrated just fine today. I got my two hours in. My butt isn't happy, but my legs are fairly philosophical.

    The short-form "bent" for recumbent, I presume, is new to me. Then again, I've never hung around with those that ride recumbent bikes.

    Wouldn't the pleural of bent be "benters"? ;^D
