Week of Oct 14 -- HR Series Class 5: 20 Minute Lactate Threshold Test

Week of Oct 14 -- HR Series Class 5: 20 Minute Lactate Threshold Test

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!

Week of October 7: Repetitions

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.

Week of Sep 16: HR Class 3: Effort Blocks

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.
