In the two and a bit years of cycling I’ve done I’ve experienced many landmarks in my fitness, from dying 7 miles into my first ride at a bus stop to conquering the local ‘climb’ without putting a foot down to rattling off 50 mile endurance rides like they were nothing.
Tonight, about halfway through Mary Austin -1, I realised I was experiencing another landmark. My legs found some kind of lactic acid balance where I pretty much couldn’t feel anything. I could hold power no problem and my heart rate was absolutely steady throughout.
Don’t know what more experienced cyclists would call what happened to me but it seemed like power, cadence, interval length, even nutrition all came together for this perfect training session!
2 years of trainerroad and its the first time I’ve felt like that during a workout. It felt special.
