We did a solid hour of work today that was comprised of four 8-minute intervals which hovered around 90% of threshold and then one longer interval that was about 80%.
Once again I set my threshold power at 310 watts and it was HARD at the beginning. Ouch. Luckily as the workout wore on I loosened up and my speed actually increased and my breathing got easier. In the beginning I was having difficulty maintaining 19 mph and by the end I was holding 21. Nice.
This single speed bike is actually working out very well on the CompuTrainer!
Core was okay. Someone was using the hip abductor machine so I said, "Screw that…!" and called it a day.
