Had more fun doing an FTP test than anyone has any business having this afternoon thanks to @ehageman2015 hurting next to me and Coach @j2pointo playing DJ! Erica did not plan on busting out an FTP today so that’s how I know she really loves me. (And I think a good hard spin helped with the cramps that were still rocking my womb this morning.) Erica and I got to recover by the pool while Josh fixed up my bike so a pretty successful Saturday!
After I was able to stop whining about a sore throat I woke up with today. I got a little bit of training done. I chose to do a short ride on the trainer and a cooldown run on the treadmill to stay out of the sun. During the IM last week I was so worried about being behind I neglected sunscreen. As you can see my temporary race tat is still nicely outlined on my skin and now my skin has started to blister on both of my arms. 🤮 #dumbass#notthinking#sunburn#shouldhaveusedsunscreen#zwift#run#saturday
John and I were going to ride in New Wilmington, but of course, the weather decided to ruin the party! We decided to put a Zwift ride together. I chose the Bigger Loop because it had a little bit of climbing and would take around 2 hours to do. Stayed with John for the first 45 minutes or so, then decided to go harder for the remainder of the ride. On the first trip up the KOM, another rider was charging pretty hard behind me, so I tried to stay with them. I pegged my heart rate pretty hard for about 5 or 6 minutes doing around 5 w/kg! Finished the full loop in about 2 hours, so I decided to do it over again assuming I could finish in around 4 hours, which I did. Good day of training right at the top of my endurance/low aerobic heart rate with a decent amount of threshold and VO2 max efforts added in! #cycling#zwift#triathlontraining
Stayed inside to keep dry today but my new @skratchlabs kit is ready to get outside & play tomorrow! Added a little spice this morning jumping in my first A/B Zwift race & the legs still aren’t back from Kanza but it felt really good to sweat, work & chase, 4secs the difference from 3-8th🤦🏻♂️. Now time to nap, hit the weights & tomorrow we get back outside w/the boys... ------------------------------------------- #zwift#zwiftcycling#gozwift#cyclingindoor#indoorcycling#bcfridesbikes#skratchlabs#skratchlete
5 years ago today I completed the BHF London to Brighton after packing in the cigarettes, first time I'd ridden a bike properly for 20 years. It took us a little under 7 hours due to sheer volume of people, these days I'd be doing over double the distance in that time. Tomorrow I'll ride out to the Lavender Fields to give some support to this year's entrants.
