Our inspiration this week comes from Lillias Trotter. Told at a young age she could be one of the greatest artists in the world, Trotter believes her life has a greater calling. None of us were born to ride indoor bikes. My hope is to get folks riding outside. Please put me out of a job. I’ll be ok!
Progress is a question best answered over weeks and months, not hours and days. As such, over the last two weeks, we’ve repeated rides one and two of the heart rate series. I pride myself on not repeating playlists. So this is weird for me. I found inspiration in one of my favorite artists, Vincent Van Gogh.
The road cycling world championships (BBC preview) take place this week in Yorkshire, England. This week’s profile is based on the women’s road race with music from Austin City Limits.
This week’s playlist has four effort blocks — one minute, 2 minutes, 5 and ten. We’ll look to maintain an appropriate intensity for each duration. We’ll pay attention to our recovery rate.
