What workout did you do today? (2021, part 2)

Failed Anthony yesterday because I just didn’t want to keep going:

Possibly taking three days off for the vaccine and coming back with VO2max was a bad idea, but I made up for it with Brooks today:

Dropped my cadence a little for a couple because there was something about climbing drills in the workout description. Felt both uncomfortable and like I could go for a while longer, sweet spot strikes again.

Ramp test 259-265. Followed it with Taku, as usual.

That puts me up 19 W since I started using the PM in February. Feels pretty good.

(I probably ought to email support about that -0.9 adjustment shown there on Taku)

I did Smith -2 outdoors inside tonight on RGT round Canary Wharf I upped it for virtual sprints slightly but I kept the cadence down so I could hear the radio, it was too hot to spin fast anyway :joy:

Was planned for yesterday but was busy to made it up today. Added 6% after the warm-up to account for ERG reactivity resulting in average power lower than the target for the sprints. Ended up averaging the original target power or slightly higher on 8 of 9 intervals. Overall not too difficult but these are my favorite types of workouts.

Obelisk was in my plan tonight, it was a lovely night, so I took it outside. I ended up going further south than I meant to, so I repeated it.

Got to two reps at 200lbs on deadlifts this morning. Goal is 5x5@225lbs.

Up at 3:45am to eat and get in 2 hours before work.

Threshold followed by endurance. Garfield, then Sidole.

Guess it was a bad idea to bump up SS levels to 11.3 just before starting base. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Mount Grant. First Threshold workout in the experimental Polarized Plan for AT.

Was a bit skeptical about being able to accomplish it. Level was “Not Recommended” but it was set by AT so I think it thought I could do it. It was hard but doable.

Happy but many more threshold workouts in this block

Sweet Spot can be fun! Knocked this out while watching the women’s Olympic triathlon race. Sucked down a bottle of SuperFuel and some water. It really didn’t feel hard, but the 3rd interval got me a little during a drink causing a breathing spike. Recovery Week with a sprint tri on Wednesday, lol.

Good luck on your sprint tri.
