Rest Week…say it with me ahhhhhh!
Monday; Easy Spin to get the blood flowing!
Tuesday; TrainerRoad Mount Field. Mount Field is 3x12-minute intervals at 85% FTP with 3-minute recoveries between intervals. Seated/Standing/Mixed intervals. Legs a bit tight but had an extra easy 2 miles W/U/C/D
Wednesday; TrainerRoad Pettit. Pettit is an hour of aerobic Endurance work spent between 60-75% FTP. Nice and easy, added extra time to catch up on the last stage of US Pro Tour...up next The Vuelta!
Thursday; TrainerRoad Black. Started off slowly, too late in the day, got into it after 40 mins or so! Black is an hour of aerobic Endurance ranging from 50-80% FTP. Starting to get fidgety but focusing on the rest!
Friday; TrainerRoad Pettit. Just 'cos it’s my birthday I don't get a day off! Pettit is an hour of aerobic Endurance work spent between 60-75% FTP. Nice and easy. Extra 3 mile Warm Up/1 mile Cool Down.
Saturday; Local Loop x2. HOT HOT HOT! Zone 4/5 HR 99f max ave 95f.
Sunday; Segment Ride. Three climbs, added a little extra on third and then a couple of miles cool down at the finish. Solid ride but very very hot!
So while it was a rest week I still managed to rack up over 12 hours and 183 miles.
Next week is going to be big and there is no sign of the weather breaking so all this heat training is a good thing!
