Prepartion Week Training Report


The new season is beginning. I discovered after moving into the new house that my bathroom scale has been lying to me for the past year. The floors in the new house are completely level, while the floors in the old apartment were not. For the past year, my weight was actually 20 pounds heavier than the scale was reporting. When I thought that I weighted 149 pounds, I actually weighed 169 pounds. This was consistent with my daily weights prior to my accident. I will have to recalculate all of my spreadsheet entries and generate a new weight chart for the past year.

HIGHLIGHTS: The goal for this training period is preparation for the new season after a week off the trike. Continuing a 20-minute yoga routine three times weekly aimed at strengthening my shoulders and lower back. The smart trainer workouts were conducted indoors with the Zwift or Rouvy applications.
