Second biggest cycle month ever.
Monday I did an easy double day to burn off the roast. On Tuesday I managed to join the RN Tri threshold session. Zwift Top Tip: Top tip for group rides – pick a world that isn’t the main area. We had Innsbruck to ourselves. Clear chat and few people to mix up with.
Wednesday another easy ride before Thursday’s Sweet Spot workout after I failed to join a ride – 7:00 came and went so I just rode off. I wasn’t connected to group. Was a tough session and I felt tired so I lowered the intensity to 91% around 200/180W off an FTP 227. Was set at 220/200 for 5 min on/off time 4 (40 min total work)!
Friday was another easy day as I took on the Volcano on Saturday. 25 laps, 105Km in 3hrs. Lots of XP and wasn’t as hard as I thought. On Sunday, I’m tired. Did a 40 min run this AM and then rolled into an unplanned allotment session. Went for walk with kids – walked past allotment and thought we’d have a look at ours which we are just taking over and ended up doing an hours weeding and digging. Planned on roasting a rack of lamb which I sort of did but the oven tripped and hasn’t come back so finished in a pan. Still got a top oven/grill so hopefully we’ll survive without resorting to a raw paleo diet!
Weight: Thought I should try My Fitness Pal this week – I normally last half a day! I lasted a single day instead! I started the week at 86.3 which appears to be no change but actually this is the day after roast Sunday – when I’m normally heaviest. I think I was probably 88.5Kg last week but that doesn’t get report on the socials as it’s not good news! I must be on the right track – I’ve had compliments from two people for my efforts. Wednesday saw me dip below 86 for the first time albeit post poo and ride.
Drink: Tried this for the first time.

Game: Made and played the Lego Harry Potter game which is fun if quite hard to understand the instructions.
