    good Recovery Spin 13.2 mi 00:50 15.7mph pace

    Easy spin followed by stretching and foam roller. I am so flippin' sore from my ST session yesterday. Gotta do some more of that for sure!

  2. RUN
    good Ride along #2 7.24 mi 00:59 08:10 pace

    Rode along with C1 while he did a run on tired legs. He pushed hard this weekend and is now ready for a recovery week before his race. I am excited for him!

    I've committed to doing some ST once I felt the leg was well enough to handle it because I believe that is a core (no pun intended) deficiency that let to my injury. Today was the day. It felt... read more

    Invited a Strava friend whom I hadn't met out for a ride. We had a great chat while we cruised around Stonington and Pawcatuck. Looking forward to the next one!

    Super-easy spin this morning. Kept the HR around 100 and noodled around London.

    good Endurance Ride through Richmond 18.4 mi 01:01 18.2mph pace

    Pretty mellow spin on Zwift this morning except for a couple short, hard efforts up one of the climbs. Interval day tomorrow!

    good Endurance Ride 17 mi 01:02 16.5mph pace

    Joined a virtual group ride today and got in 2300 feet of climbing. Average power was 219 watts, which was a little harder than I was supposed to go today, but it was fun going hard uphill!

      Awesome! Thanks for posting the power, I have zero idea where I need to be training re: power.

      Garth, power is a very individual thing depending on where you are. If you have a way to measure it, and then use it in your training, you should take an FTP test and use those results to set your training zones. Look into it. It really helps quantify the effort.

    good 96% FTP 4 x 10 min @ 2 min RBI 20.6 mi 01:04 19.2mph pace

    Had some fun intervals this morning. Low end of my steady-state range. The intervals felt reasonably hard, but the short rest definitely increased the RPE.

    alright Endurance Spin 19.2 mi 01:01 18.8mph pace

    I wasn't up for arising at 4:15 to swim today. Yesterday was one of those up-work-dinner-Scouts-bed kind of days that tend to tire me out, and I felt it this morning in my legs. So I decided t... read more

    Spent most of this time going uphill on Zwift, hence the low speed. Spent 30 minutes averaging 239 watts. Just 4 watts short of my FTP, but within the margins of error in that measurement. It felt ... read more

      Glad to hear the leg is improving! You are being smart about not rushing back to running. You are doing really well with keeping your fitness up through cycling! This looks like a great workout but I have to admit, I do not know much about those numbers. ;)

      Thanks, Kristin. I am doing as much as I can to keep from pulling my hair out! The numbers are really relative to an individual's lactate threshold. What I am most excited about is getting back to running because since the injury I have purchased a running power meter from Stryd (www.stryd.com) and I am anxious to start using those data to guide my training zones. I am such a data geek. :)

    Steady State 3 x 15 @ 3 min RBI 21.4 mi 01:11 18.0mph pace

    Well, that woke up my legs! :) Felt good to take a good beating. Legs felt pretty good. The first interval felt hardest but the shortened rest interval really made it hard!

      It would be far more difficult on the smart trainer since the gradient is so steep. My resistance doesn't change, I just go WAY slower.
