    It was sick, not because of its awesomeness, but because I am sick. I was too achy to lay in bed any longer so figured I might as well get up and try to work out some kinks. Nice easy spin. Loosene... read more

    Hit the bike this afternoon for some rampdown intervals. 3 x 15 min [4, 4, 4, 3 min @ 100%, 98%, 97%, 96% of FTP]. Nailed my target power on every segment. Felt really good to get a sweat on!

      Nice! I did an FTP yesterday....nearly killed me! I did the 2x8min efforts though instead of the 20 minute. Considering I've been sick 10 days, I did ok. The numbers are new to me, but it's a starting point. 268 for the first effort, 235 for the second one....hurting! Have fun on Sunday! :)

      @Tracy, does this mean Santa brought you a power meter or smart trainer? Yup, the 2 x 8 min version is a solid FTP test. Did you get a good 10 minutes or so of rest in between efforts? I wouldn't have expected the 2nd one to fall off so much. Did your HR actually get into triple digits? :) Nice work!

      Mike brought his smart trainer over for me to use...now I'm in the market for one. My avg HR was the same for both efforts. Yes, thankfully there was a 10 minute recovery between efforts. I faded big time! We'll see how the next one goes. :)

      Nice spin, Steve! Glad you were able to get something in. Next time you can join us in the pain cave! It was actually balmy in the garage this morning. If it weren't so wet and messy out, it would've been a good day to ride outdoors! :)

      I still can't clip out so outside isn't a safe option yet. Soon though. It was balmy from all that heat you were generating!

    Easy spin to flush out the legs. Followed that up with a little core work.

    good Midrange SS 4 x 10 22.97 mi 01:10 03:02 pace

    Took a break from work and hit the trainer. Today's spin called for 4 x 10 min intervals on 5 min RBI. Hit the target on all 4. Yay! I was really feeling fatigued by that last one though.
