What workout did you do today? (2022, part 1)

One of my favourite TR sessions. I love these ‘throw it at the wall and see what sticks’ type of efforts. The time just flies and you’re engaged from start to finish.

Got me puffing towards the end.

today I was feeling so good, increased the intensity on a 2 x 16 min @ FTP session and marked it as “moderate” hell yeah! and there is only 2 mins between main sets

Is it scoring you low across all types of workout or just VO2 Max?

Unless you’re really committed to an experiment of not changing anything, I’d pick a stretch or breakthrough workout. Easy VO2 intervals are a wasted hour, and I fear AT won’t ramp you up fast enough even if you’re rating them as Easy.

Seems mostly VO2max. Thresholds, like Cartwright, are challenging. In Cartwright-1, a stretch for me, the last one or two steps in the interval are about right, and have me hit 94-95% HRmax with controlled but heavy breathing.

Wish there were a way to adjust VO2max interval duration during the session.

I did a full-body workout today that consisted of four sets of 12 reps each for the following exercises: chest press, lat pull-down, shoulder press, biceps curl, triceps extension, and leg press.

Started my workout today with nonchalance, got through the warmup and first interval without any problems, and was feeling good. Maybe I lost my focus, but half way through the second interval I started to feel rough, and made up my mind to quit after that interval (not common for me). Unfortunately I got into the next recovery valley and was both feeling good, and realizing that if I stopped before the last interval it would only be a 59 minute workout. With OCD kicking in, I steeled myself for one more interval and struggled on, feeling yesterdays food taking its toll on me.

Because I missed a ride yesterday, I used alternates to push WL up by 0.3 beyond what AT had planned. Went great - lots of PRs.

Warm enough to get outside. First time taking the new bike outside–cut the ride short of because I’m not totally used to the new position yet.

I just loped along at 7:40 pace chatting with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while.

First endurance ride I’ve marked as moderate in awhile. Heart rate a little higher than normal too.

This week was pretty brutal, and the rest day tomorrow is much welcomed!

Dragged ass on this. I’m not great in the morning. Tried to do the first hour fasted but had to eat after 20 min. Lifted for an hour after breakfast.

Eleven hours easy riding in the weekend and today into the meat grinder again with 30min @390 W + 20min o/u @406 W (body weight about 83,5 kg today). Total 50 minutes at threshold then. Amazing how increased blood volume from low intensity “just riding” does wonders for threshold adaptations. TTE has increased with 10 minutes in just four weeks.
