Knighthood Attempt 18th Feb

Test ride today went well. So it’s game on next week! I did:
Told off by angels
The best way is blended
The tool shed
Revolver is easy
Defender

About 4hrs 50min @75% off a hard weeks training. Feet up now!

Not 100% on my order yet but definitely starting with Attacker after ending with Defender today. I did the mash ups so that I could get a feel for as many workouts as possible at reduced intensity. Contrary to what most people say I preferred the longer, steadier efforts and had no problem with Defender 4hrs in. Revolver after 3hrs did start to bite though!

Here is a link to my wife’s charity page if anyone is interested. It’s for an autism charity and one of our children has autism. No suffering on the turbo comes close to living in a world that doesn’t understand you.

I’m happy to hear your test went well and I’m excited for next week!

I did all of my videos at 70%. It felt too easy at first, but it was just bearable towards the end. Maybe start with 70 and increase later if you really feel super strong?

Oops I forgot to paste it in.

I’ll start at 75 and if I have to reduce in the last few I will. I did today on tired legs for 5hrs. So it’s possible (I think) I can do 8hrs on fresh legs next week.

Looks like a good lineup. Includes some of the O.G. - GvA approves.

Man, you guys and The Omnium…HAVE YOU LEARNED NOTHING?!?

:smirk:

I thought the Omnium might be good as it has variety when the mind is tired but I am afraid of the Kilo that late on!

CPT_A any alternatives you’d recommend for towards the end when you are wasted?

A man after my own heart…some of my favorites are in there!

I think I might swap out Power station for Fight Club. One low cadence session is enough!

No, I was just pulling your chain. GOAT is a nice change of pace at #9, but by the time I was to #9 I was just head down and finish. Honestly I might just put Omnium earlier, rather than have to take on the kilo when you’re barely past the (Sufferlandrian) half-way mark.

An ambulance? :ambulance: :astonished:

Too soon? (We joke because he’s ok!)

Luckily it wasn’t an ambulance, I rode a bike to hospital, uphill both ways!

All set for tomorrow and many thanks to the anonymous Sufferlandrian who sponsored me!
My final list is:
Attacker
Fight club
Vise grips
The Wretched
Who Dares
AVDP
There is no try
The Omnium
GOAT
Rue the day

Looking forward and I’ve tried not to overthink it. Just had an easy week of commuting on the bike but no turbo sessions. Nutrition was bang on last week, so just need to double up on that.
Plan to start around 6am UK time.
