Cycle Log: Competition Phase Week 1

Week 1 is the first week of the first mesocycle of my 2012 Competition Phase (click here for a detailed description of macrocyles, mesocycles and microcycles).  Here are the actual workouts with the plan for the week of April 16-22, 2012 (click here to download my plan for the Competition Phase).

Week of 4/16/12 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 1.5 HC 1.0 AR OFF 1.5 TT 1.0 AR OFF 1.0 AR 6.0
Actual 1.5 HC 1.0 AR OFF 1.25 TT 0.75 AR OFF OFF 4.5


I had a very interesting week.  I am still dealing with significant leg fatigue even though I am coming off of a recovery week.  I noticed it during Monday’s Hill Climb workout at South Mountain in Phoenix.  My legs had no snap and tired pretty quickly. However, I rode my TT bike up the mountain for the first time and broke my PB by 21 seconds.  I can’t wait to see what I can do when I ride with strong legs!  My legs were better (but not 100%) during Thursday’s Time Trial Intervals workout. I did 4 x 6:00 hard efforts with 4 minutes recovery.  The first three were very strong but I cracked during the fourth.  Again, it was muscle fatigue.  After an Active Recovery ride on Friday, I decided to take the weekend off to rest.  Hopefully, I’ll get my legs back!  I have another hard week coming up.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
