Deciphering "Time Crunched Cyclist" by Carmichael acronyms and codes HELP
The Time Crunched Cyclist Training Program by Chris Carmichael may be great, but holy broken spoke is it poorly organized.
He uses acronyms constantly without having a glossary of useable index.
Can you help?
And, more importantly, when he describes over under intervals in his training regime he writes:
60-90 min EM with 3x8 min
OU (3U,10) (6 min RBI)
I translate as 60-90 min endurance pace, with 3 eight minute efforts and 6 minutes between them. But what the heck is OU (3U,10)????
3U must mean 3 of the 8 minute efforts are under, but what the heck does that 10
