Just getting to the end of SSBLV1 for the first time. Really enjoying it so far. This week is my easy week and I did Pettit last night. Don’t get me wrong, I was looking forward to an easy week but this workout is soooo boring. I was ready to jump off the trainer after 20 mins.
If this had been a high intensity session, I would’ve considered it a failed workout. Keeping focused and keeping my power on target was really difficult.
I’m now considering replacing the other 2 workouts this week (Bald Knob and Brasstown) with outside low intensity rides instead but I know I’ll be missing out on the structure. The thought of 90 mins of this type of workout bores me to tears.
So my question is, how do you guys get through the easy workouts? I’ve heard on the podcast that some guys watch tv or racing, but I feel like that might distract me even more from the work at hand and before I know it, I’ll have been pedalling for the last 10 minutes at too high or low intensity.
