Happy Easter to all!
I had the best workout on my trainer yesterday that I just had to share. It was a fairly long 2 hour ride. It was broken down into 3x10minute blocks that were repeated 4 times. Here's how it looked:
10" at ~90 rpm
10" with 10 seconds Sprint 50 sec. Aerobic zone
10" at ~80 rpm test speed---at a fast pace that I did my time trial at other day.
It was a workout designed to work on leg strength. It kept my mind busy and off the clock. I was able to ride 2 hours without feeling totally bored and brain dead from staring at the same spot on the wall.
I am so anxious to take my bike outside but the winter has not cooperated for that. The snow is mostly off the roads at this point but now they are covered with huge amounts of sand and the potholes are atrocious. Soon. I will get out of the house soon.
I had a beautiful albeit cold run today too. The wind was whipping and it was only about 20 degrees but the air was clear and the sun was bright. I felt strong and easy for the run. It was a great way to start this Easter day which involved way too much gluttony!!! Back to fruit and veggies tomorrow and I think I can honestly say I don't want to see any more chocolate for a while!!! That's right! I'm Off chocolate! :-) At least I'll try.
