Build 2 – Week 3 Training Report

BUILD 2 – WEEK 3 (05/23 – 05/29) 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. The trainer workouts were conducted indoors with the Zwift or Rouvy applications.

COMMENTS: I completed two skills mastery sessions in a local park with my new recumbent this week for a total of 3 miles and roughly an hour of training time. I have the “spread eagle coasting” skill in hand. The next skill is “teasing the pedals,” the prelude to pedaling. The rest of the workouts this week were on the recumbent mounted on my smart trainer with the Zwift and Rouvy apps.
