Cycle Log: Intensity Phase Week 6

Week 6 is the third week of the second mesocycle of my Intensity Phase (click here for a detailed description of macrocyles, mesocycles and microcycles).  Here are the actual workouts with the plan for the week of February 21-27, 2011 (click here to download my plan for the Intensity Phase).

Week of 2/21/11 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal TT Test 1.5 1.0 AR OFF 0.5 AR OFF 0.5 AR VM TT 20K 5.0
Actual TT Test 1.0 1.25 AR OFF 1.25 AR OFF 0.5 SS: I VM TT 20K 5.25


This was a recovery week but included a high-intensity field test on Monday and my third race of the season on Sunday.  I had a great week.  I did my field test indoors because of cold temperatures and set a personal best during the 30-minute effort at time trial pace.  I recovered over the next 5 days with two Active Recovery sessions and a brief Steady Spinning: Indoors ride to prep my legs for Sunday’s race (the Vulture Mine Time Trial in Wickenburg, AZ), which was great.  I came in 2nd place in Cat 5, which is my best finish since I moved to Arizona.  My time was pretty slow for a 20K TT (37:22 – the actual distance was about 13.1 miles), but that was due to the cold temps (mid 40’s) and the huge hills.  May have been the hilliest, non-hill climb time trial I have ever done (close to 500 feet of climbing).  But I was very pleased with the results!  I have another race this week.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
