Cruel Workouts

Apr 6: Day 53

Planned Workouts: Bike, 15 minutes Z1, 4 x (2.5 minutes Z4/5 minutes Z1) 15 minutes Z1

Weight: 172

You know you are in trouble when you read the description of your workout and it says this:

“This workout may seem cruel. However, the Muscular Endurance built into this workout will support the final months of your training.”

That’s…..sorta inspiring.  I think.  Also a cause for dread much of the day.


It actually wasn’t THAT bad.  It was made better because my replacement PowerTap pedals arrived!  So I was excited to get back to using those, which took my mind off the workout.  But then I got off the bike and there was a puddle of sweat on the floor.  Clearly there was something to those words lol.

Back on the PowerTap, I gotta give that company kudos.  They were very responsive and helpful at every turn, and from what I understand problems are really rare.  If you are in the market you can rest assured if you have ANY problems, they will take care of you.

Also, finished transcribing my workout playlist!  So…here it is, posted at the end.  And remember, everyone has their own tastes and inspirations.  No judging!

That’s all I got for today.  Cheers!
