Subject: RE: SBR Utopia ---- Permanently OPEN!!

I did a slight variation on Week 12's long ride today:

20' w/u with pick-ups

45' @ 80%

45' @ 85%

45' @ 80%

30' @ 85%

15' @ 90%

10' c/d (well, 7....because I got back to the car after 7 minutes)

The weather was absolutely perfect (I suppose I could have asked for a bit less wind or maybe in a different direction, but whatever....temps were awesome, blue sky) and my legs performed just as I asked them to.  It's one of those rides where everything feels like it comes together almost effortlessly.  Now let's hope that's the kind of ride I get in my race in two weeks!

Hello all.  I think I'm one of the last few to finish off the final round testing.  I came down with a cold last week and then Easter Weekend delayed testing even further.

I wanted to get a few rides in before the final 20' minute test, so I'll likely be testing on Thursday or Friday.

I ran across a blog by a local Ontario pro and training with power for his build-up to Texas 70.3.  Interesting results considering he focused mainly on the sweet spot and very little training above threshold. 

He must have done something right as he had the 5th fastest bike split.

Scott - You're not alone, I've been trying to work my next set of testing into my plan in a place where I feel comfortable not changing things too much.

Nicole - Glad that ride went so well. It's a great feeling when everything comes together!

I really enjoy his blog. It will be interesting to see how he develops.

I think he is self coached but not 100% sure. While he says he did not do much over threshold, he does question if that was wise.
He also talks about hitting a plateau.

If you do the same thing over and over, at one point it becomes less effective.

I wonder what he would have achieved if he did a few months with some high intensity then moved to his current mix.

Find a mentor. Make a list of at least three people that you could approach for help, list your specific needs and then be courageous enough to begin asking.
