I’m really trying to stick to my plan, whiteface 100 mtb has not yet been canceled or postponed. I really wanted to go mtb my local trails today but I’m in my first week of specialty with my new ftp that is quite a bit higher then my previous, so I know it is crucial for me to nail my workouts right now.
I just could NOT ride within the dark, concrete walls of my basement today, I just couldn’t do it. 55F degrees and sunny this morning, I knew exactly what I had to do!
I never used my Tacx neo 2t outdoors, or unplugged, but figured, why not! I can’t believe how easy it was to set up the trainer in my back yard with no power source. It worked flawlessly.
Today my workout was Galena. So 3x20min@90%-94%. This would typically be a very hard workout to complete as long, steady state intervals are not my strong suit. I can honestly say that I was shocked at how much more motivation I had being outside, soaking up some sun, watching my kids mtb on our little backyard trail, and havBig a nice 55F degree breeze blowing on me the entire time. It made the entire experience exponentially better!
Just thought I’d share, and if you ever want to change things up, I’d highly recommend doing this. I can’t wait for my next opportunity to do it again!
