What a race so far, eh? I’ve been enjoying it on Versus while I do my training.
I was really impressed with Levis ride up Boony Dune. I’ve driven up Boony Dune and it’s a good ascent, but he smashed it. First catching the group of 7, then putting another mintue on them, when he was over 3 minutes back. Amazing!
Yesterday they started in my birth place, San Jose CA, and had a points sprint in Downtown Livermore, my last residence before moving to CO. I have done the climb up Patterson Passroad, which is a great climb. The ascent is steep and whindy.
I look forward to todays stage in the Sierra foothills.
As far as my training has gone, I took Saturday off. I needed a little rest from the snowshoeing I did on Friday.
Sunday I did 2 hrs on the trainer at Zone 2
Monday I did 1.5hrs on the trainer at Zone 2 and a couple of hours skiing with my daughter.
Tuesday, Ouch! I’m still sore on Wednesday.
In the morning I did a strength workout, then in the afternoon I did two different sets of power intervals. The first set was 5 3×3 at zone 4.9-5. Then I did a 10 min recovery spin, and then started with the second set. 3 OverUnders, 2 min at 86-90% LTHR, then 1 min all out zone 5, the repeat two more times for a 9 min interval. I finished with a 20 min cooldown recovery spin. Total time: 1:45hr
