Finally got some sleep.
Did it help? Not really, my legs were pretty tired this AM. Oh well.
We had another full house at Cycle University today for round four(?) of our CompuTrainer session. Nice.
Unfortunately we are still learning all the quirks of the system and did not get rolling until 6:25 AM. Since I had a meeting at 8 I had to cut it short and only got in 40 minutes of work. :( On the up side we are figuring stuff out and hopefully starting next week it will be smooth sailing.
I opted for a threshold setting of 310 watts today which seemed like a good choice in retrospect. Still, I had to quit pedaling for just a couple of seconds twice during this workout. And I didn't even finish it. :( I started out holding something like 19 mph, would surge to 21 during the breaks but then dip back down to sub-20 when the workload increased. Boo. I should be over 20 for sure.
We had some motivational help this AM from Dan H.
Here is how far I got (note red, vertical line). See how shaky the picture is? I was still breathing really hard when I tried to take this.
And here are my numbers; which I still have not totally figured out yet. Like 'Recreational'…? I'm so sure. :)

At the IMA some yahoo sat down on the hip abductor machine just as I was stepping up to it. Not wanting to get kicked out for starting a brawl I took the high road. All the way to the locker room and then the sauna. 'Cuz that's how I roll, all PC and shit.
