Build 2 – Week 1 Training Report

BUILD 2 – WEEK 1 (05/09 – 05/15) TRAINING REPORT

HIGHLIGHTS: The goal for this training period is to focus on endurance and tempo intervals alternating with recovery rides. Continue a 20-minute yoga routine two or three times weekly aimed at strengthening my shoulders and lower back. Workouts from Tuesday through Saturday were conducted indoors with the Zwift application. Sunday’s workout was conducted outdoors, the second one since the crash at the end of June 2021.

COMMENTS: Today’s 41 mile outdoor workout was the last one to be ridden on my standard road bike. My new recumbent racing bike arrived on Thursday and I delivered the box to my local bike shop for assembly. I have scheduled a fitting session for this coming Wednesday. On Thursday, I will begin the transition to racing the recumbent by advancing through a series of 32 skill drills. Earlier in the week, I registered for a 10 mile time trial at the end of May, my first race with the new recumbent and my first race since June 2021. I also registered for the 6-12-24 Hour World Time Trial Championship, November 4-6, in Borrego Springs, CA.
