Did a 15 Minute Warmup
15 Minutes at 65% Threshold
15 Minutes at 75% Threshold
15 Minutes at 95% Threshold
5 Cooldown

For the first 5 minutes of each interval we were allowed to see what our power was. For the next 10 they covered it up. This was a test to see if we could ride the correct power based on RPE. It was interesting. I was within 4 watts each time.

I have another VQ torture session tonight.  Should be a good time.

Recovery Run

Going to run tonight probably 4 miles.  I need to get some swims in.  I've been slacking on that lately.  I'm just too lazy to get up in the morning now. 
 

Monday - August 3

Didn't sleep well last night.  It was really windy and our furniture on our roof deck kept blowing around.  I was too lazy to get up and go tie it down.  I would just fall asleep and then hear a chair go flying across the roof. 

I may try and get a short ride in tonight as my legs are tired from yesterday.

Was going to go 1500 today. Something is wrong with the pools heater. I stopped at the 500 yard mark and looked at the temp and the water was close to 90 degrees. I bailed on the rest of the swim.
