Cycle U CompuTrainer | core

Why can't I sleep as long as I want…?! Sometimes I think the only way for me to get enough sleep is to nap and who has the time to do that? Not me. Damn.

Managed to post a reasonable result at Cycle University this morning and still make it to the gym at lunch although my motivation was seriously waning by then.

I started the first 20-minute interval at a threshold setting of 335 watts after Ryan D sent out an exhortation to the entire team urging us to go for five more watts. I started the second interval at 440 and then during the dip in the second interval I upped my threshold setting to 350. Not because I thought it was too easy at 340, just because I had done it once and knew was hoping I could do so again.

Today was tough! I didn't bail but I was huffing and puffing pretty good there at the end of these 45 minutes. I had to force myself to breath really deep to get enough oxygen to my legs and they were not happy. I'm pretty confident I was still feeling the effects of yesterday and I wonder what I could do if I showed up to one of these workouts really fresh.

Ryan was once again super inspiration, he looks so at ease during these sessions and I don't feel that way at all.

At the IMA my motivation was not super but I checked the core box. Sometimes all these exercises I need to do just in order to be able to exercise are a real chore.
