Though, I did not ride all my scheduled hour I finished with a solid week.
After I missed my Thursday and Friday rides, I was determined to ride and not on the trainer. I ventured outside in the snow. I prefer to have 35 degrees and snow over the same temp and rain. My feet and seat still got wet from the wet road but it was bearable. I was able to ride 4hrs. In that 4hrs I did 25min in zone 4 with some long cruise intervals into the wind. I did another 35 minutes in zone 3 and the rest in Zone 2 and below. The last hour I was done riding and just limped home.
Sunday, I was scheduled for 5hrs. I led a Spin class and then made it home for a 4hr ride. Craig was able to meet me at Hiway 370 & Hiway 50. We coodinated out training schedule and it worked out good. He had a "Group Ride" day. He could ride hard or easy. I had an endurance ride... zone 2 and lower. We set a moderate pace down Hiway 50. Craig rode hard up the hills and I kept my consistant speed. Once we got on the flats, Craig would do most of the pulling into the wind. There were a couple times my HR went above my Zone 2. We parted ways at Hiways 370 & 50. I rode home into a steady headwind. I had to help out with some painting at home so I called my wife for a rescue. Still I had 4:15hrs on the road.
This morning it was very slow going. I was beat. Thank goodness I am now on a rest week.
