    I have been doing an ICG power spin class to improve my ftp numbers (currently 169 - don't laugh) - after the class I am totally exhausted. I go to bed so tired it hurts, but can't fall asleep. It's possible I an dropping off and waking up - but bottom line is I am tired the next couple days. Any else dealing with this? what worked for you?

    That's not unusual. You can try doing the work out earlier in the day.

    Again, I think that you should report back on your experiences. But after a hard ride I normally cannot get more than perhaps 6 hours of sleep that night. The next night I sleep better and recover.

    Yep it can be hard sleeping if you do these in the evening. I prefer to do all my intervals in the morning before work because of this.
