Cycle Log: Endurance Phase Week 3

Week 3 is the third 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), which means it is a recovery week.  Here are the actual workouts with the plan for the week of October 15-21, 2012 (click here to download my plan for the Endurance Phase).

Week of 10/15/12  Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 1.0 AR  1.0 CI  OFF    1.0 AR  OFF   1.0 AR  OFF   4.0
Actual 1.0 AR 1.0 CI OFF 1.0 AR OFF 1.0 AR OFF 4.0


I had a very good week of rest and recovery. Because I rode the 70-mile Tour de Scottsdale last Sunday, I did an Active Recovery ride on Monday on surprisingly strong legs.  Tuesday’s Cadence Intervals workout consisted of 4 x 5:00 moderate intensity efforts at 100+ rpm with 5 minutes of recovery. I recovered the rest of the week and I’m looking forward to Monday’s long ride. As always, I’ll let you know how it goes.  Have a great week!
