Jeff''sNovember training update
Now that I have reset my password and back on line, I will recap this month’s training.For the past three weeks I have been focused on power starts and tempo rides and of course the Low E. As I started this year’s training I was not sure what to expect after getting injured and having so much time off.If starting the power starts with over 1200watts was an indication of good things to come I was feeling pretty good about my fitness. well after three weeks duration and 58 power starts I notice every time I preformed a set my 5sec average power would increase, I managed to top out at almost 1300watts and the best thing was as I would complete a set my power would level at about 1200watts and hold, I notice no drastic drop in power, even after completing 12 during a set! My tempo rides would start at 2x 20 min and I worked my way up to 1x 45min with great improvements. My Hr started at 156 for a 20 min tempo and has now fallen to 146 for a 45min tempo with +10 watts!! Still have a long way to go, but I'm willing to work hard and wait for the bigger improvements as the training runs it course.I'm hitting the weights 3x a week and core every other day, for this week its rest with just 5 power starts at the end of the week, so I can compare the # after rest 1350PLEASE!!!!
