Today at Cycle University I started the trainer workout at a threshold setting of 330 watts and did NOT have to back off. Goal one accomplished.
And at lunch I was again able to finish the usual amount of reps in my core routine. Nice way to cap the work week I must say.
This morning we tried a new workout - I thought it was a good one.
In case you can't make it out, that first interval is FORTY MINUTES LONG. That's a long time for people like me; especially with not much warm-up. But I did it. Thanks to Ryan D and Tony B for being there, company is king for me when riding the trainer.
That second to last hill in the first interval was killer. Much harder than the last one. It's two minutes long and all the previous 'hills' are just 60 seconds. And it's at 110% of your threshold power.
That last interval was harder than I thought. You finish the big one thinking, "Whew, the workout is over!" Wrong. I had to re-gather my focus.
When it was all said and done my right knee felt a bit sore, like I had been pushing a huge gear for ages, which I had not. It felt fine by the time I got home so all is most likely well.

At lunch I got down to the IMA and did my core thing. The back extensions are still super hard, I feel like my back is just phenomenally weak (which it probably is after almost three weeks off) and I'm pretty stoked to have gotten in three days of core this week.
