SCROLL DOWN FOR LATEST TRAINING UPDATES
Resting this week, last week was Spring Break so I took a deviation from the standard plan and opted to do some mega mileage. I needed to just get out and enjoy riding as well as doing the training, and honestly I just wanted to see how much riding I could do in 9 days. Grand totals were around 560 miles and about 29.5 hours:
Saturday: 4.5 hours of Endurance riding (233 W)
Sunday: 4 hours of steady Tempo riding (262 W) - kept the power variability down to just 6%.
Monday: 2.5 hours, 5x10min subLT intervals (263-293W) on TT bike, plus 45 min spin class
Tuesday: 3.5 hours w/ 70 minutes of upper tempo (282 W), rest, and then 1x20min subLT (314 W), plus 35 min spin class
Wednesday: 3 hours w/1 hour of sweet spot tempo (304 W)
Thursday: 1 hour crit simulation (about 290W)
Friday: 1.5 hours w/ 1x20min, 1x15min, & 1x10min LT intervals on TT bike (291-300 W), plus 1 x 5min VO2 Max (327W)
Saturday: 7.5 hours Endurance (200km, 213 W)
Sunday: 1 hour EASY (181 W)
So naturally this week I have been taking it easy, recovering, doing just my spin classes during the week, but putting some effort into them to keep my lactate tolerance systems working, and today I will do a 1.5 hour race tune-up. Chances are that the "mega-week" adaptations won't totally kick in until 3 more weeks from now - Ephrata - which was the point.
