Workout of the Week!

23 02 2010

OK, this was the first workout of the week, so it was the best one! 🙂

There are some das though that you just feel right. This morning I woke up, got a yogurt and on to the bike. I was happy that I could “sleep in” as I only had a one hour Tempo Ride scheduled for the morning, a real luxury!

So I start the computrainer, load a previous performance from September/2009 to keep me honest. Well, that was a bit of an issue. I wasn’t really able to keep up with me (I was about 10W lower at the same HR)! Having said that, I did quite alright!

If  you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see the data on the left:

  • Normalized Power: 179 Watts
  • Heart Rate Avg: 139 Bpm

The most surprising for me though, was that I usually find the bike workouts at this Heart Rate very hard, and today it was so easy to maintain a good power and HR!

Well, I guess we have good and bad days. This is definitely a good one! 🙂

March 8th is approaching, when I will start the real training… Peak Performance Program for IM Lake Placid. I had a look on what is waiting for me, and the first long bike is 4 hours. Well, I might change that, but we will see. That is for another post!

Hi Tracy
Unfortunately only 2 watts per kg. It’s all relative, though. It was worse before 🙂
