A Week With the UCI World Cycling Centre: Road (never did this one before today) - I almost pushed this one until late this afternoon (and I’m glad I didn’t because it’s been a hectic day at work) but I woke early enough to get some food in my belly and a cappuccino, and made it on the trainer with just enough time for a shower before I have to head to work.
I may have built this one up more in my head, or it may have been dialed back just enough since initial release, but I really nailed this one today. That said, I’ve been specifically working on sustained threshold efforts all winter. My 4DP has me as a pursuiter, but my weakness is sustained efforts, and I think mostly because of the relation to my MAP (my FTP is low for my MAP). I have a Full Frontal scheduled for Sunday a week after the Tour so I will see how far I have come. I did do a Half Monty late January and adjusted my FTP based on the results, so I’m working from the Half Monty numbers for my workouts.
My description of the workout - You know that big hard thing you just did, OK, now do it again but with some extra hard efforts! I enjoyed this early quote:
These girls rocked this climb.
No pain face or other pics today. Couchlandrian on the couch and I was on the trainer long enough that the Minion emerged from the bedroom to walk on the kitchen counters.
