Way to go Blogger! Thanks for eating it for the last 3 days. Do you know just how bored some of us got?
Do you how much going black made us realize just how much we need to get outside instead of staring at the computer screen all day long? Oh wait....we do go outside, A LOT. What?
Anyways, my coach gave me my latest installment and things on the training front are continuing to ramp up. What is on the docket?
Well last night was a 20 min all out Time Trial effort. I scored 261 watts over 20 mins, which gives me a new FTP of 235 watts. That gives me a 3.47 watt/kg ratio. Aka, I am stronger and lighter than this time last year on the bike. (as I should be!)
Saturday is a duathlon! A 35 min run, 3 hour bike, then another 35 min run.
Sundays is another 2.5 hours on the bike.
Monday is a "rest day" of just a swim.
Tuesday is a 2:15 run, which, depending on how I feel, could be the longest I ever run in my whole life.
This is actually less volume than last weekend, only the overall intensity will be higher. Remember, training load = time * intensity. Even though I am doing less time, with higher intensity will equal a larger load.
Quick post here. Nothing else going on too crazy other than this time next week I will be in Lake Placid BABY!!!!!...for my first training camp. Bring it!
