Base 1 – Week 2 Training Report
BASE 1 – WEEK 2 (10/17 – 10/23) TRAINING REPORT
The first test of training in my unheated garage occurred on Tuesday. The weather was overcast and the high temperature was in the low 40s. Rather than bundle up with multiple layers of clothing, I simply cancelled the 90 minute workout. Then, the rest of the week, the temperatures climbed to an unseasonably 70+ degrees. The ambient temperature in my garage was in the 80s, which required no extra clothing at all.
HIGHLIGHTS: The goal for this training period is a mix of interval workouts with long endurance efforts. Continuing a 20-minute yoga routine three times weekly aimed at strengthening my shoulders and lower back. The smart trainer workouts were conducted indoors with the Zwift or Rouvy applications.
