- I wasn't sure want to expect as I reviewed my plan that my Coach upload to Training Peaks. I then printed it so I can see what I needed to do and placed the printout next to my laptop. I went onto YouTube and found a Bike Training Video that was an hour long and maximized it on my screen. Turned on the fan, which was louder than my trainer!
- As I sat on the Test Saddle from Cobb, thinking I hope I do not get numb testing this new seat. I think it in the best position as possible and felt comfortable. I think I might have a winner! Then I mounted my watch onto the bike mount and pressed start. It picked up the cadence meter and my heart rate monitor and I slowly peddled for the warm up as prescribed for 10 minutes. Now the test...
- Effort #1: 8 minutes MAX effort. Gradually ramp up the power during the first
45 sec-1 minute, then hold your max power for the entire 8 minutes. This should
HURT, but try to maintain your power througout the interval. Give it all you
have left on the last minute!! **Record avg HR and Avg Power (If you have a
power meter) RECOVER by spinning SUPER easy for 10 minutes!
#2: Same as #1, this is your MAX effort! Gradually ramp up the power and hold
it for the entire interval! Give it your all for the last minute!!!
- With all the huffing and puffing, about half way through all I thought about was that this was going to make me stronger and ready for IMAZ! I am no stranger to training hard. This is the first time someone will be review and critiquing my workouts. Having another set up eyes will help me get to the next level. I know I do it for other companies and business that reach out to me to help them grow and this is the first time that I actually hired someone to do the same for my fitness journey.
