Back on the road to fitness week 2

Step Down Intervals

The main work here is a long descending ladder that starts out above threshold and steps down in progressively longer intervals.  A nice intro to week 2

Low Cadence Intervals

An so, another round of low cadence intervals.  I struggled with these during prep week but got on ok with them today.

The Long Ride

This ride or this week’s long ride, we take on sustained tempo work. Rather than spiking from base endurance, this week you will tackle long, sustained work in the tempo zone.or this week’s long ride, we take on sustained tempo work.

1 hour on the turbo = 2-3 hours on the road – Even on a flat ride, 10% of the time on the road is spent freewheeling. On a hilly ride when you add in descending time, it can be up to 40%! Turbo training is harder because there’s nowhere to hide.

Endurance Free Ride

Nice to get a break from the structured during at the end of each block of training.  I am going to use this to measure my progress.
