HIGHLIGHTS: The goal for this training period is to continue increasing time in the saddle with the addition of race-pace and anaerobic intervals and a 20-minute yoga routine two or three times weekly aimed at strengthening my shoulders and lower back. All workouts were conducted indoors with the Zwift application.
COMMENTS: The 2022 MidAmerica Time Trial Series (MATTS) is going to start with a indoor race at 10 AM, Saturday, March 19, using a new online platform called RGT Cycling. This event will take place on a virtual version of the 10 mile Kaneville, IL, road course that we race multiple times each season. All competitors in an age-group will race together, but there will be no drafting benefit. Finishing the race will count towards the 10 required events to place in the overall MATTS points competition, but no points will be awarded.
