Sunday: Bear mountain Grand Fondo recon super hill ride. I got zero sleep the night before besides a 2-3 hour nap last saturday evening. The temperature was right on the border of cold and not as cold, so I was in a big debate on clothing. I finally opted for winter hat, leg and arm warmers, standard socks, one jersey with windbreaking plastic bag underneath, fingerless gloves. The start was a little bit dicey and I wished I had used my full fingered gloves, but after the first climb I was able to warm up. The first few wait ups I would get off my bike and start to get a little dizzy from not sleeping. All in all, I was able to survive, and had a good time. There are some beautiful roads up there. Oh, also, my garmin was acting up again. I don't know what that's all about, but my data looks very patchy. Also the unit turned off for a little bit and wouldn't restart. Strange stuff. I think that's why my average on gconnect is so screwy. Also also, new CP of 231W.
Saturday: Rain. No riding. Also resting for tomorrow.
Friday: Rest day. Didn't feel like riding, so I worked on the bike instead.
Thursday: Lactate tolerance Interval type sprint things. I woke up feeling really tired, but I told myself to just do three intervals. I ended up going for 4. My power numbers seemed low, so I guess I was as tired as I thought.
Interval - Max Speed (MPH) - Max Power (W) - Max Cadence (RPM)
1 - 33.8 - 946 - 122
2 - 32.3 - 948 - 120
3 - 32.3 - 1006 - 120
4 - 31.3 - 949 - 116
Wednesday: Rode the peugeot to the weld preserve to strum my banjo for a little bit. Afterward, I got ready and did the wednesday hill evening ride thing. It's nice to have a ride that pulls you inside-out.
Tuesday: Cold and windy day. Wussed out. No riding.
Monday: Rest day. Rested.
