Cycle Log: Endurance Phase 2014 – Week 13

Week 13 is the first week of the fifth 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 December 16-22, 2013 (click here to download my Endurance Phase training plan).

Week of 12/16/13 Mon Tues Wed Th Fri Sat Sun Total
Goal 2.5 TPO or HC 1.0 AR OFF 1.25 PI 0.75 AR 1.5 SS OFF 7.0
Actual 1.0 AR 1.0 AR OFF 1.25 PI 1.0 AR 1.25 Tempo OFF 5.5


I started the week with recovery rides because I was still dragging from last Saturday’s epic Trash Ride. I recovered by Thursday’s Pyramid Intervals workout and did 4 x 5:00 Zone 4 efforts with 5 minutes of recovery. I had a good Tempo ride on Saturday as well. Because I have been really pressed for time, I did all of my workouts on a stationary bike or indoor trainer. My exciting news is that I went past the 5,000 mile mark for miles ridden this year! I should have a new personal best by the end of the month. I’m hoping to get out for some longer rides this week. As always, I’ll let you know how it goes. Have a very Merry Christmas!
