Moday we were still in Mammoth and spent the moring on out Mountain bikes. There is an extensive set of trails that can be explored but they had closed the day before, we sneaked on and snaked around for a bit, shhh! As recovery as 1000' over 11 miles can be. The bike out-kicks my coverage and will roll up or down things that have me with my heart in my throat. Felt fatigued generally but nothing major from Sunday Yosemite ride. Fun times in the dirt with Becca.
Tuesday off in lieu of Monday and drove back to LA.
Wednesday, TrainerRoad Townsend. My leg was stiff from travelling yesterday, finally warmed up after 30 minutes or so. Townsend consists simply of 1.5 hours of Aerobic Endurance spent between 60-70% FTP. Extra 15 mins warm up and a mile cool down to round up. Here endeth the month and the biggest month this year with 839 miles and 34,000 of climbing
Thursday, TrainerRoad Givens. Early morning start with added 4 mile warm up. Givens -1 is two sets of 3x2.5-minute VO2 Max repeats at 122%FTP. 2.5 minutes of recovery falls between Intervals and 8 minutes of easy spinning separates the sets. Still have the diff' between the Vectors and Stages but was aiming for around 250W on the Vectors which will be closer to 275W on the Stages. Rest day tomorrow before Saturday's Stonehaus Century.
Friday. Rest day
Saturday. Stonehaus Century Ride.Solid ride through M72. The ride up Latigo (which I've never done) was brutal, midday sun and relentless switchbacks! 10 miles of climbing and 2100' of gain. Missed the timing on fuel and by the time I reached the top I was close to bonking. Strong rides up Decker and Mulholland. New wheels and cassette ride really well. Second century ride in last 7 days.
Sunday. Recovery day.
So five rides for 12:13 and 166 miles. Not a massive week for mileage but a good amount of climbing and the back to back long weekend rides made for a solid 7 day stretch.
