Period 1 – Week 3 Training Report

PERIOD 1 – WEEK 3 (11/21 – 11/27) TRAINING REPORT

Back on July 20th, I reported that I had withdrawn from the World Time Trial Championship 6-Hour event in Borrego Springs, CA, after learning that one of my two competitors would be racing with a two-wheel recumbent, the Cruzbike Vendetta, which I could not compete against with my recumbent trike. The results have been posted and the two-wheel recumbent won, completing 109.2 miles (18.3 mph) in 05:58:55. The three-wheel recumbent completed 73.2 miles (12.7 mph) in 05:46:18. Quite a difference in total miles and average speed.

In other news, a local judge has granted my discovery petition ordering the scooter company to give me all of the identifying information on the individual that rented the scooter that hit me. The scooter company has 30 days to comply with this 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.
