After my first bout of SS (Carson) in forever today this looks absolutely horrific, and it’s a -1 variation!

Good job.

Just over 3 hours zone 2 in the sun in the UK - cool and quite breezy but virtually no traffic. Back to work next week…kind of well no teaching - just login to the school hub on a daily basis …I wonder what exciting things they can come up for me to do from my front room bar setting Physics work for our y9 students which I appear to have been allocated! :laughing:

Week 1 of my personalised SSBMV2 done. I’m glad to get this one under my belt, as it’s been 3 weeks since I’ve spent 2 hours on the trainer. Interested to see if I make any gains on this second run through…

Well if it is physics then sure watch you on Trainerroad or Zwift will be the perfect lesson. Outdoor physics v virtual physics :grinning:. See Anyone using RGT Cycling, thoughts?

Working my way up to Washington +4 which so far I’ve yet to complete!

Staying focused on the weekends. I did have a Threshold workout scheduled but I decided early on that I wasn’t up for it. This ended up being a high TSS week for me, (some junk miles for sure), but an Anaerobic effort yesterday - so I’m glad to just get on the trainer for the second day in a row and knock something out that felt effective for moving the needle.

Antelope -5, fueled with a 300 calorie bottle of Tailwind.

Galena. This is my jam! For some odd reason I love that pain that comes from spending long periods of time just under ftp.

Fletcher for me today:

Done with the rest week of SSB low volume I (been doing an extra ride or two for the last three weeks or so to start increasing volume). Stepping up to mid volume for SSBII. Wish me luck!

Today’s training was a doing 30 minute blocks of low cadence muscle endurance working on the mid engine legs bust at the end. Nailed it the last lap or effort was a fight of will power but still hit the target I set myself of 250 with 251 when I was fatigued so a good effort after 2 hours. Laps 1 and 2 averaged 257 and 253 and lap 2 included a down hill section just to make things harder


On the whole efforts extremely smooth

Wright Peak -2. Took a while to get warmed up today, so that first set felt harder than the rest. Once I settled in, this one was great. Trainer dropped out with three minutes left in the final interval, but it snapped back after a few seconds. Not sure what happened.

Watched Sucker Punch on Hulu for entertainment. Looking forward to next week.

I was going out for a 40 mile gravel trail ride and notice the only rain in the region/week was menacing the trail. So I did Beech instead. I’m not in a rule #9 frame of mind today of late.! This is supplemental to the first week of Sweet Spot Base LV1. Add and feel like a hero miss or skip a workout and feel like a zero! beech_20200419-141851|474x500

And listened to the pod cast to keep me occupied. What happened on Beers with Chad? :thinking:

Did this as part of IronmanVR3 today. 22W lower than what I held for nearly twice the duration three weeks ago, but getting sick will do that to you, I guess. Also had a couple treadmill runs of 1.5k and 5k to go with this.

Antelope.

So that wasn’t too bad considering the +10W bump - I felt my legs a bit during the warmup, but once I was into the work, it was ok. Not easy, but ok.
