Triathlon Training Day 14
It was pouring rain this morning so my 40 minute ride was spent in my nice dry garage. This is where Zwift and trainers shine; I get to stay dry, listen to the news, and when I’m done I’m I just hop off. The 40 minutes was to include 8 minutes of “hard” cycling. For me that meant staying above 3w/kg. I did this for 5 minute chunks and dropped back to 2.2w/kg for rest. For the first time using Zwift I found myself being motivated by staying with other riders. Usually I tune out the other riders but for some reason today I found myself being competitive with a small group of riders on the same track. I ended up getting in 15 miles on Zwift in the course of 45 minutes which means my legs can feel it.
