Notes to self on training cycles

Yesterday the legs felt decent on the commute even though the previous two days they were achey from the race. Those two days were hard so I thought they'd still be achey but they felt snappy on the commute today.

I think I do well the week after a rest week. Last week was somewhat of a rest week that ended with a race on Sunday.

Last week
Mon-Off
Tues- Off
Wed-1hr with some hard efforts
Thurs-Easy mtb skills work
Fri-Off
Sat-1hr Zone 2 with 5x1min on 2 off
Sunday-Race
Mon- Off (though my legs felt decent)
Tues-Tough Butt Kicker workout 4sets 12min on alternating 2mins MSP with 4x:15 on :15 off leadout intervals. Only able to complete 3 sets
Wed-1hr hard MTB, legs ached didn't ride too well
Thurs- Commuting.


I think I need to adjust the cycles to put a race the week after a rest cycle and not at the tail end of a rest cycle.

what is the difference between a rest cycle and a rest cycle?

you mean a build or hard cycle at the end of the sentence.

anyway, great blog. i am in the same life predicament... i mean situation. married, kids, trying to be a fast expert, with no genetic gifts.

This is an example of a rest week:
Mon-Off
Tues- Off
Wed-1hr with some hard efforts
Thurs-Easy mtb skills work
Fri-Off
Sat-1hr Zone 2 with 5x1min on 2 off

My current schedule had a race on Sunday. What I am finding is that the first few days coming off a rest week the legs don't feel super duper.

But 5 days after the rest period ends the legs are feeling good. So what I need to do is do my rest week, then do another week of riding to bring the legs around then do a race.

Payday Loans are a flawless arrangement in the event that you all of a sudden need a fleeting money infusion - maybe to pay for another cell phone or an end of the week split away.

In the event that the borrower can't pay the adjust of the credit right now, he can rollover the advance and take out another advance with more interest.This can turn out to be exorbitant while putting the buyer in risk of getting in route over their head with advance reimbursement commitments.
