I was trying a zone2 interval workout, where after a quick warm-up of 3x :30 at 110rpm, :30 off, I would do 1x 5:00, 2x 4:00, 3x 3:00 and 4x 2:00 at 90rpm (Big Ring X 13t adjust to keep heart rate in zone2). Then I finished up with 3x :30 at +120rpm (Big Ring X 17t) to get the heart rate into zone4, and :30 off, and finally easy spin for 1:30. It didn't go as planned (as shown in the chart). I use Seconds Pro timer on my iPhone, which is great. But I forgot that if you turn the screen off, you don't get the audio alerts from the timer. My 2x 4:00 was pretty much combined into a 1x9:00. So I certainly won't be using it for outdoor cycling workouts. Then I had to stop riding and go upstairs for a little bit too, I think that was around the 3x 3:00. I'll have to try to do this workout again, I'm sure it's a good one, just need to be able to complete it properly.

Path to pave to gravel to Co1 and back. Hope all the racers in Arrowhead 135 are doing well!
2015 KOM on Mini gravel sector 1 (6:01)
2015 KOM on South Bear Creek (5:18)
You can tell from the charts that this workout was more of a sweetspot (zone3) and subthreshold (zone4) ride. In fact if you combined the two zones together, they accounted for 65% of my time. I'm not sure that I should do this type of ride too much this early in the year. I guess I shouldn't worry too much as I haven't gotten much in the way of LSD (Long Slow Distance) this year. Most of my rides have been about an hour or less. When I do start on some longer rides, I'll need to keep in zone2 for a couple weeks.

Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored. eastwood mountain biking rochester ma
