I’m starting a new cycle of SSLV2, so I did my Ramp Test today. I did fairly well given my overall lack of fitness and the results seem reasonable. I’m not unhappy.
After coming in from my garage where my trainer is set up, I see that there’s an Air Quality Alert in my area. It’s a Code Orange Ground Level Ozone Activation Day according to the US National Weather Service. We just moved to South Carolina from Michigan a few months ago, so I’ve never seen one of these. Is it an issue to work out in these conditions if I’m not part of an ozone-sensitive group? Should I expect different results or perceived exertion if I do a workout? Is this a sweet, sweet opportunity not to be missed and I should train under ground-level ozone conditions at every chance I get, forsaking sleep, food, and responsibilities to do so?
Most of the information I’ve found is geared toward people that may have existing conditions and they may not engage in the same levels of activity that the average Trainerroad user does. If anyone has any information from a training perspective, it would be greatly appreciated.
