Preparation 1.1 Training Report
PREPARATION 1.1 TRAINING REPORT (09/25 – 10/01)
This is the first week of the 2023-2024 race season. The primary focus of this upcoming year is an attempt at three ultracycling world records in early September. A secondary goal is to eclipse the 150,000 mile career mark. I have logged 145,861.34 miles since 2001. I only need to log 4,139 miles during the next 12 months to surpass the 150,000 mile mark.
The pattern of two consecutive daily workouts on the trike, followed by a rest day, continues. My fitness level increased by two points, from a Training Stress Score (TSS) of 17 last week to 19 this week. The length of the individual workouts is increasing, along with interval duration and power intensity.
HIGHLIGHTS: All cycling sessions were completed indoors with my recumbent trike on a Kinetic by Kurt Road Machine smart trainer + Rouvy application.
