One way to keep myself focused this winter training season was to try and work on badges whenever there was an opportunity. I finally finished all of the Inspiration workouts today and earned the badge. My final workout was “All For One”, a 1 hour and 40 minute z2 ride and one of the longest workouts in the Inspiration category.
The film accompanying the workout details the story of team GreenEdge, an upstart Australian cycling team. The film focuses on commitment, teamwork and working against the odds to achieve success and it really felt like a perfect fit leading into the TOS next week. There are several stories within the film but two of them were really incredible examples of persistence in overcoming significant injuries to get to the podium. I highly recommend checking out this workout if when the opportunity arises to fit it into your training schedule.
