Done. The first week of training comes to an end. This week I loved the riding I’ve done. I followed the routine every day as I initially set them out. A Monday rest day, Tuesday sprints, Wednesday threshold ladders, Thursday Steady Efforts, Saturday 1h30m and Sunday WVS Club Ride(110km).
This was perhaps a little over what I am comfortable with. I’ve ridden a total of 325km this week, something I was not really used to. Additionally, temperatures here in the UK reached 30 degrees celsius making the ride a bit tougher than it could have been.
Time for rest. Despite all the effort made this week, I feel good. The legs feel a bit sore and tan lines aren’t great. But I think I did accomplish something this past days and hopefully it wasn’t at the cost of the next week. I hope I will be able to follow the 3 weeks of training I want to do.
It didn’t seem right to start the training with a rest day. Now I know why the rest day is there. Legs need to heal !
