Post inspired by Garmin-Cervelo and Fizzhog…..
I have been asked by colleges/friends and readers on here how I have gone from almost 40 stone to someone who can cycle at an average of pretty much 17-19Mph every ride now, the answer is guess work, guess work that actually seems pretty close to where I need to be looking at what Fizz posted re the rider from Garmin.
Sunday – Day One = 99% of the year this is the day I spend TOTALLY off the bike, resting.
Monday – Day Two = Monday Morning’s ride is the one I TRY to do at Threshold level, the only issue tends to be Monday Traffic.
Tuesday – Day Three = Climbs Climbs Climbs, Joel Lane and Mottram Moor are the order of the Morning with “Big Hill Of Death” the order of the evening.
Wednesday – Day Four = This day is for the longest and hardest ride of the week , This is where PB’s are set for both speed and distance
Thursday – Day Five = I normally throttle back on the speed and distance here, but will usually throw a climb or 2 in
Friday – Day Six = This is where I ad lib, I normally mix it up with speed, distance and climbs, but I have been know to climb like crazy here
Saturday – Day Seven = Traditionally a day of rest, however in recent times its been a training ride day, this is all about getting as much distance in as I can within 2 hours , normally 30-40 miles plus.
