1/17 - 20.19 - Gran Fondo Over/Under Tempo - Felt GREAT and ride went fast!!! Could be due to the set up of the training program within Zwift.
1/20 - 53.91 Gran Fondo - the Long Ride - 2 x 30 min Tempo with Surges - Great ride!!! 15 degrees in the garage and feet felt cold and numb. Don't know if I need a seat adjustment or if it was just the cold weather.
1/22 - 17.85 - I think I am hitting a wall. The weather is really cold and my body is feeling fatigued a lot quicker. I am hoping it is the cold BUT I think it has more to do with my diet and I am burning more than my body is consuming. I find myself taking more days off due to fatigue.

I've been able to get out for two weekends in January and was able to ride 100 miles each weekend. I also ride Zwift.

FYI - I ride a Hammer H2 on Zwift and I find the Zwift miles more difficult than outdoor miles.

YMMV

Outside Miles 200
Zwift Miles 600
Total 800

Goal 900

Goal was 250
Just came back from last ride in Jan with a total 337 for the month.

Check Strava last year and I did not hit that mark until May 1st so I am off to a good start.
