Thursday nights have became a gathering of friends that enjoy suffering… and SUFFERFEST. You know the workouts, torturous intervals and climbing all while riding along side of some of the world’s toughest cyclist in some of the most amazing places on earth. Last week we had one intervals after the next… over and over… until at last the 60 minutes were up. I was satisfied with my output for the most part. Sure I had more in the tank but it was a decent strong effort.
Well the dirty secret was told by my Garmin the following day. I sand-bagged…. and all the signs were clear. Low average heart rate…. Low average Cadence…. Oh the shame… J. I shared this with Scott and we had fun with it…. teasing and such.
So this brings me to last night’s trainer garage workout. Scott joined me (thank goodness) and we were off. My Garmin would have no dirty secrets after this ride…..
10 min. easy spin
20 min. Gearing mix
5 x 8 min Intervals (holy-mother-alive)
5 min single leg drills (are you kidding me…after all of that…my legs)
What I can tell you is that this girl dug deep on the last 2 interval sets. It was HARD and my legs were
loving feeling the BURN. Take that! :)
