Spring training started today
February 21, 2008
My plan is to ride hard during my morning commutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays and then easy for the rest of the week.
Hard mornings usually involve 30 minutes of warm up and going hard where possible on the way to Richmond Park, 20 minutes hard around the park and then 30 minutes of going hard where possible and warming down on the way in to Soho.
London’s drivers of course do not appreciate being overtaken by a cyclist trying to keep his heart rate over 90% so my main opportunities to put the pressure on outside the park are when accelerating away from lights and on the few hills along the route.
The rest of my training plan involves a decent length, moderately paced, hilly ride on Saturday mornings and then complete rest on Sundays.
