Period 1 – Week 1 Training Report
PERIOD 1 – WEEK 1 (11/07 – 11/13) TRAINING REPORT
This week is a return to Coach Cooper’s 2019 endurance-based training plan. This six-week period is a mix of endurance, aerobic base, and strength development. This coming Thursday, the 18th, a local judge will rule on my petition to order the rental scooter company to release the identity of the individual(s) responsible for my injuries from the accident on Sunday, June 27, 2021. The scooter company has said it would not oppose my petition and is “happy” to reveal the requested information upon receipt of the court order.
HIGHLIGHTS: Each week consists of four specific cycling sessions, two recovery cycling sessions, and two strength/yoga sessions. All cycling sessions were completed indoors with my recumbent trike on a smart trainer with the Zwift or Rouvy applications.
