40 minutes of low cadence big gear high tempo (sweetspot) work, working on Strength Endurance. Done outside. Total 1 hour 10 outside with 30 mins getting to and from section of road I used, acting as warm up and cool down.

Had Walker scheduled but have the flu, so chose something of lower intensity but longer, Broken Hand. Longest ride by 22 mins, will give Walker a shot next week if I’m feeling better.

First O/U session in quite a while. No part of my body enjoyed this.

This was a 4-hour ride with 4x30 minutes of Tempo intervals. The aim for the intervals was to get my average HR into the range of 145-151 bpm (threshold HR is 162 bpm). On the first interval, I just set it to 280w and average HR was 148 bpm, perfect. On the second interval, I maintained 280w for the first 27½ minutes, but then my average HR rose from 151 to 152 bpm, and I had to drastically lower the wattage for the final 2½ min of the interval to get the average HR back down to 151 bpm. Trying to mess with the wattage like this while riding seemed kind of silly, so for the final two intervals I just lowered the wattage a bit each time, and I was able to keep HR in the targeted 145-151 zone.

This is my first time to target HR instead of wattage on such long intervals, in such a long ride. A bit of a learning curve, but seems promising.

I was originally going to add another half-hour of Endurance riding at the end, but after the intervals I was pretty tired, and in any case this got me to 18 hours of biking and 13,200 kJ on the week, both records for me. I am taking the day off today!

Ooft. When I start back on VO2 work I think I’ll ease back in with some on/offs for a couple of weeks before hitting sustained intervals.

20 Minute FTP assessment to start the year off.
