Week of April 1: Interval, Sprint, Build

Week of April 1: Interval, Sprint, Build

After our two hour class on Saturday and FTP testing the week before, we’re ready to start anew. The next two months will bring a focus on cadence and breathing. This week’s playlist is a three song circuit: interval, sprint, build. The goal is to ask our legs different questions.

March 26: Indoor Milan San Remo: Prep for Two Hour Class

Dave Slikker will start the ride at 10AM.  We’ll ride for about 57 minutes, take a 5 minute break, then 57 minutes til the end.  ‘Effort over time’. That is our goal. If possible, bring a USB drive to capture your results.  You can upload them and get some pretty cool stats.

Week of March 18:  The Middle 50 [FTP Test]

Week of March 18: The Middle 50 [FTP Test]

Every ten weeks, we do a Functional Threshold Power (FTP) test. An FTP test gauges how hard you can ride if you had to pedal for one hour. It’s a difficult class as most indoor riders can’t pedal for three or four minutes without needing recovery.

Week of March 4: dead presidents ride

Week of March 4: dead presidents ride

Each President’s Day, I do a “Denomination’s Ride.”  There are intervals of one, two, five, ten and twenty minutes.   It’s a little harder to pull off in a 50 minute class.  So I created a new profile called Dead Presidents, with the ten-minute interval repeated twice.
