Cycle Log: Endurance Phase Week 5

Week 5 is the second week of the second mesocycle of my Endurance Phase (click here for a detailed description of macrocyles, mesocycles and microcycles).  Here are the actual workouts with the plan for the week of November 7-13, 2011 (click here to download my plan for the Endurance Phase).

Week of 11/7/11 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 2.5 SS 1.0 HCR OFF 1.5 Tempo 0.5 AR 1.5 PB OFF 7.0
Actual 1.25 Tempo 1.25 HCR OFF 2.5 SS 1.0 AR 1.25 PB OFF 7.25


I had another great week.  I had to rearrange my schedule a bit, but I did all of the workouts. My Steady Spinning session was hard because of strong winds.  I did my Tempo ride on the indoor trainer and rode well.  I had a great Power Bursts workout.  I did 14 x 15 second repeats on an indoor trainer with 2:45 recovery.  I had no problem pedaling 53 x 12 beyond 85 rpm during the power bursts.  I have a field test on Monday and then I recover.   I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
