Recovery Week post Strada Rosso.
Monday TrainerRoad Lazy Mountain. 1 hour of easy, steady effort between 45-55% FTP.
Tuesday TrainerRoad Mont Gosford. Today should have been a FTP test but legs not fully recovered from weekend and feeling a little beaten up from last night's massage so pushed it off. Added 15 minutes warm up and rode Mont Gosford is 1.25 hours of Tempo intervals spent between 70-80% FTP with intermittent, 2 to 3-minute recoveries at 55% FTP.
Tuesday evening TrainerRoad Taku-1. Quick ride to double down today
Wednesday Mont Gosford (yes again). 15 mins warm up followed by Mont Gosford which is 1.25 hours of Tempo intervals spent between 70-80% FTP with intermittent, 2 to 3-minute recoveries at 55% FTP. Focused on lower cadence and climbing drills.
Thusday Mount Hope. Usual 15 minutes warm up and then 5x10-minute intervals at 95-99% FTP with 5-minute recoveries between intervals. Just below target, felt a bit bloated. Ride was in the afternoon rather than before breakfast
Friday Royal Loop TGIF Quick loop around the locale. Picked up a slow flat didn't change it just stopped to give it a quick pump twice. Pushed hard on a couple of sections and put on too much sunscreen, it made my eyes sting!
Saturday Royal Fruit Loop. Royal loop segment to Fruit Stand and loop back past the Missile Base. Pushed hard on some sections and enjoyed the tailwind. Eased off with 3-4 miles to go
Sunday Buck and Change. Used the new Crusin' The Conejo double metric as a base. I was going to come up short as it starts further away. After yesterday's hard ride this was a deliberately long easier day but with a couple of good climbs. Paced myself pretty well and could have carried on. 300m+ week
Massive week, probably my biggest ever with over 316 miles and 19:38 of saddle time. It was a big push to close out March with 1000 miles! So mych for recovery!
