      I started training pretty late this year so I'm just getting started on base. I took a month off after 'cross season ended partly because of a long season and partly because a close friend and teammate died in December. Last week was week 1 but it's alright since I don't plan on peaking until late June.
      Anyway, today was 2.5 hrs on the trainer taking it easy in zone 1/2. Tomorrow it's to the gym and then 1 hr easy on the trainer. Hope you all in better climates are taking advantage riding outside.

      Yeah, it supposed to be 68 here today...it's 45 right now.
      And sorry to hear about your friend/teammate. that sucks!

      2.5 hours on the trainer last night. It feels like my zones are shifting (for the good) so I need to retest next week. Definitely not looking forward to that

      Only managed 35min on the trainer last night. Watched Wheel of Fortune and picked it up every time someone bought a vowel.

      What's your routine for a zone test? I need to do one as well.

      I generally do 1 minute, 5 minute, and 20 minute critical power tests on the same day roughly ~6 weeks. Take your CP20 value and multiply it by 0.95 and you have your Functional Threshold Power.
      20 or so minute warm up hitting each zone briefly to get the blood flowing to the legs. I generally allow 5 minutes between each of the tests. then finish my ride plus a 20 minute cooldown.
      Back on topic, 3 hours on the trainer tonight ouch

      Work and weather has been keeping me from getting outside for my long rides. it's not so bad if you have a structured workout, makes the time go way faster. just pedaling while sitting on the trainer is impossible.

      I discovered this last night during my virtual criterium DVD. It was only 40 minutes long but the constant action and structured attacks made it fly by. By the end I was dripping sweat and making loud breathing noises [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      You're harder than me my friend!
      I did 90 minutes in the damp, windy 40 degree weather this morning. 1x20 @ 95 sucks when it starts with the tailwind and ends in the headwind!

      45 minutes outside, temperature about 30 degrees, out to belle isle and back., probably 10 miles? would've been out longer but i need better socks, my toes were going numb. the toe covers i just got were an improvement, but still not enough.
      please keep in mind, i just do this for fun and an adequate level of fitness, i have no aspirations to race or get my fred on

      Two hours of AeT/Tempo work in the basement this morning. Looks like two data drops around the 60 min mark on the PowerTap again. Damn technology.

      http://velothreads.bigcartel.c...teeOh, feel free to buy something from the site too...it's my team...
      100km in 2:45 this morning. Started with 14, came home with 6. Lost the sprint @ 6" to a young whippersnapper...it won't happen again. Then I channeled my inner redneck and took #1 son to MONSTER JAM! It was quite fun!

      Amazing t-shirt.
      2.5 hour group ride this morning. Sitting in with the christmas stars until they blow up is my new hobby. Three weeks until the season starts [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Did 20 mi today lots of wind but dry streets.

    20. 01-24-2010 06:17 PM #120
      Break in the rain yesterday, so I went across the bay and back. No big climbs or anything, just an enjoyable ride to a place I've never ridden before, and taking much longer than an hour. I haven't done that in a while, and I miss it! (damn cyclocross... )
      I also stopped to take photos, which no doubt totally messed with my training.

      I actually rode today.
      Only did 6km (3.75 miles) on the river trail, but it was slushy and -4°c, -13 with the wind (24°f, 9 with the wind). It wasn't that far, but the slush was like riding through sand for a good chunk of the ride.

      100 minutes on the cross bike
      Explored more than anything else, but found where I'm going to put on a cross race next winter!

      Sat - 35 mile first outdoor tempo ride of the season, painful...
      Tuesday - 1 hour of hill interval work.
      Wednesday - 25 miles, 3 timed hill climbs for base line, felt good.

      LOL, it's January and you're doing intervals, hill intervals at that! Why?
      More damage than good at this point in the season. Base dude! Do you have a ATP?
