I wanted to do an HOUR OF POWER to finish the weekend of training on a high intensity note. My legs felt surprising well after the 130 mile and 10,000 feet of climbing ride from yesterday. I found a hill 1.5 miles long with a gradual increase in grade, a slight relief in it and a steep kicker at the end. The hill was perfect for getting your intensity up gradually and then powering over the steepest part when you are most spent. It was perfect.
There were also two short kickers where I performed 15-20 second sprints ranging in the 800-900 watts range. On one of the kickers I hit 999 watts and I wasn’t even going for a max sprint number.
Now that my legs are thoroughly worked I will take Monday as a rest day…a well deserved rest day.
