Period 1 – Week 4 Training Report
PERIOD 1 – WEEK 4 (10/28 – 11/03) TRAINING REPORT
HIGHLIGHTS: This was the fourth of six weeks commencing winter training for the 2020 race season. The aim of the first six-week block is to rebuild and extend a strong aerobic base, and to re-establish all over body fitness, strength, and flexibility. The weekend rides were conducted outdoors on a local bike trail.
The workouts on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday were cancelled due to right hip pain incurred from a fall and too high saddle height on my road bikes. Began physical therapy and taught four hip strengthening exercises to perform daily.
Saturday’s ride was a 23.00 mile effort at 60%-80% MHR completed in 1:38:27. Average speed was 14.1 mph; maximum speed was 19.8 mph.
Sunday’s ride was a 29.44 mile effort at 60%-70% MHR completed in 2:09:25. Average speed was 13.7 mph; maximum speed was 19.9 mph.
