Cycle U CompuTrainer

Oops… I tried to come back too soon.

Today was my first hard (and by 'hard' I mean I thought I was going to go hard) workout since the Chuckanut 50k.

Amazing that one hard run could blitz my body for so long. Then again, I guess it's normal that you need to adapt to this sort of thing (this sort of thing being running long distances) and that is something I have not yet done.


It was just Tim F and I at Cycle University today. Tim was on a rest week and I was hoping to dial in about 320 watts as my threshold setting but no dice. I felt super tired just spinning the pedals before we even engaged the workout so before we started I made sure the threshold was set to just 300 watts. That worked.

Although I had doubts during the first 10 minutes… thank goodness it got better as the workout progressed. The second 20-minute interval was actually quite tolerable. Still, I think tomorrow will need to be another active recovery day in hopes of getting in some quality work this weekend.
