Cycle Log: Endurance Phase 2014 – Week 8

Week 8 is the second week of the third mesocycle of my Endurance Phase for the 2014 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 November 11-17, 2013 (click here to download my Endurance Phase training plan).

Week of 11/11/13 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 2.5 SS 1.0 AR OFF 1.0 CI OFF 1.0 SI OFF 5.5
Actual 1.5 HCS 1.0 AR OFF 0.75 HI OFF 0.75 HI OFF 4.0


I had an unusual, yet exhilarating week. I spent 5 days in Colorado Springs at USA Cycling headquarters participating in the Level I Coach’s Conference. I am happy to announce I have achieved Level I status as a cycling coach, which is the highest level possible! It was an educational and empowering conference where I learned a great deal and made many new friends. I also rode a bit. Before I left, I did a High Cadence Spinning session on a stationary bike. While I was in Colorado, I did two, 45-minute Hill Intervals workouts on the hotel’s Life Fitness bike. They were short, yet very intense sessions! I have another busy week coming up so I will only get about 4-5 hours of bike time. As always, I’ll let you know how it goes. Have a great week!
