Cycle Log: Intensity Phase Week 6

Week 6 is the third week of the second mesocycle of my 2012 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 6-12, 2012 (click here to download my plan for the Intensity Phase).

Week of 2/6/12 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 1.0 AR OFF 1.0 AR OFF VOS TT 14.2 M 1.0 AR OFF 4.5
Actual 1.0 AR OFF 1.0 AR OFF VOS TT 14.2 M OFF 1.0 AR 4.5

 

This was primarily a recovery week, but I also had my biggest racing test of the new season at the Valley of the Sun Time Trial.  This is a 14.2 mile TT that climbs about 250 feet on the outbound leg.  Last year, I completed the course in 39:17.  I have had every indication that I am much stronger now, which is why this was such an important test.  I believe I passed with flying colors as I completed the course in 37:04, which is a 2:13 improvement!  This is going to be a really good season.  I have a hard week coming up.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
