    It's killing me but..........

    Certainly have been my worst encounters out on the road with occasional hostile opinionated drivers being the next worst, but touch wood I have not been hit by a car yet.

    It's killing me but..........

    Pedals are still on the bike and I am still pedaling. I came back to see if any of the old crew were still posting. Like RD my work schedule this year really interfered with training consistency and I am probably in the worst shape in several years. But I still keep trying and hope that maybe...

    Do you keep a log of your training?

    I suppose I would count WKO 3 as the main training log, but I also log on my blog, uploads to WKO 4, Strava Premium, Garmin Connect and Xertonline. Most of these automatically sync to the other applications so I am not actually spending much time uploading data. Most of these are just to...

    I think you are asking about the 2711 kj, which is ~645 kcal. Here is the Strava link for that ride https://www.strava.com/activities/283431483 or http://thecyclingaddiction.blogspot.com/2015/04/brewery-solo-100.html

    Do You Recommend Rollers For Training? Which Ones?

    I have E-Motion rollers and have a good number of hours on them. I recently bought a fork stand attachment that will allow me to use the rollers in a traditional way or lock the front fork and use it similar to a fixed trainer without having to balance. Of course the E-Motion rollers are easier...

    It's killing me but..........

    It's been a while I suppose the only goal I've had other than just attempt to improve overall is to attempt a SOLO sub 5 hour century. I think the conditions were right for the attempt on Saturday, but I wasn't really even thinking it about. In fact the only reason I went to 100 because a...

    It's killing me but..........

    I hope someone is crushing it :-) Great to hear you are back in action bgoetz. It is not going as well in my camp with a rough start to the year. I am getting in some training, but I have a lot of distractions at work, weather and life. The weather has been colder and wetter than other seasons...

    BP, looks like thing are picking up for you as I see you are increasing the load and intensity. Nice efforts lately!

    It's killing me but..........

    Fairly excited to be coming out of the hole from late 2014 holidays plummet. I believe my FTP is getting back to about where it was before and now I will hopefully start building again, but the sucky thing my weight is still too much. I felt the drag yesterday on a steep 1.6 mile climb and a PR...

    It's killing me but..........

    Same for me. I haven't done a formal test in a very long time. To do a formal test outdoors I would have to take a day off of work plus interrupt my other forms of training and I don't want to do this. I believe what I am using for my FTP is probably the same as if I did a formal test and...

    It's killing me but..........

    My progress so far with training has hit some tough moments outside of training. I hope things settle in and smooth out. Now that my Kickr is being controlled by the power meter it certainly became more difficult, but also more realistic. I am still ramping up incrementally each week as noted on...

    It's killing me but..........

    Things for me are slowly starting to ramp upward. CTL was at 75 yesterday to give an idea of where I am at the moment. I am still on the same program for weekday training using higher intensities Tuesday to Thursday and get about 90 TSS/d out of those by targeting 100%+ of FTP. But it has...

    It's killing me but..........

    BP, I will give my blog write up. It had links to download the app and some instructional videos but I removed them. There is a Slowtwitch link to the discussion that also leads to the original source at the Transitions forum. I got a not from someone at Wahoo saying they are removing the beta...

    It's killing me but..........

    BP, have you seen some of the recent discussions about being able to use your power meter to control the Kickr? I just about have everything setup to give it a try this evening. This will allow us to eliminate one step in recording the data and faking out the TrainerRoad workouts. I currently...

    Cycling Shoes

    Thanks When I picked up the Giro shoes the clerk told me he just started using the Giro Empire lace up shoes and was loving them. It is the same shoe as the one I got but has laces. The clerk said the laces evenly snug the foot. I imagine the same as the more expensive boa systems.

    Cycling Shoes

    This is not what the OP is looking for, but I got the Giro Prolight yesterday and posted an initial look at the shoe. It is my first pair in the $300+ US dollar range. This pair will hopefully become my primary pair with my current Specialized Extreme demoted to rainy day shoes. The Spec...

    Realistic expectations...

    One of my favorite things to remember in my own training is the common, "Keep doing what you are doing and you will keep getting what you are getting." I've enjoyed some similar discussions on the web lately from guys like you that have a lot of experience both good and not as good. When I...

    It's killing me but..........

    Thanks swampy It is and has been an interesting experiment both for what might happen out of this structure polarizing between shorter more intense weekday intervals and long low intensity rides on the weekend. Even though I have no events scheduled this is like playing a game of chess to me in...

    It's killing me but..........

    I looked at the new TrainerRoad format and training plans this morning. I think I will stick with my own schedule again for this season. I kind of have a more specific idea of what I would like to achieve, but a big part of it is fitting it with my life schedule. I have a new clean...
