Build 1 – Week 2 Training Report
BUILD 1 – WEEK 2 (08/22 – 08/28) TRAINING REPORT
Received a phone call from my friend who was hit by a car two weeks ago. The car was actually a moving van. He injured his hip and wrist. However, his doctors said that surgery was not required for either injury. So, he is rehabilitating at home with crutches and a walker. No estimate of how soon before he can get back on a bike. The police have still not found any trace of his bike. In other news, Saturday’s three and a half hour training ride was my longest single mileage indoor session of the year: 69.05 miles. This beats my next longest session of 55.92 miles on August 20th by 13.13 miles.
HIGHLIGHTS: The goal for this training period is strength maintenance through the end of the season (in four weeks). 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.
