Cycle Log: Endurance Phase Week 1

Week 1 is the first week of the first mesocycle of my Endurance Phase for the 2013 racing season (click here for a detailed description of macrocycles  mesocycles and microcycles).  Here are the actual workouts with the plan for the week of October 1-7, 2012 (click here to download my plan for the Endurance Phase).

Week of 10/1/12 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 1.75 SS 0.75 AR OFF 1.0 Tempo OFF 1.5 PB OFF 5.0
Actual 1.75 SS 0.75 AR OFF 1.0 Tempo OFF 1.5 PB OFF 5.0


I had a great first week. I felt very strong and performed each workout well.  It was nice getting back outside for my Steady Spinning ride. Temps were comfortable (mid-80’s) but it was fairly windy.  My Tempo ride consisted of 15 minutes of zone 3 riding in a fairly large gear. My Power Bursts workout included 8, 15-second bursts up a very short, steep hill.  I’ll be riding the 70-mile Tour de Scottsdale next week.  As always, I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
