Ergh. When I thought my legs were getting faster, and I was getting over that last everesting, I’d actually been building up more fatigue from stage racing.
It’ll be good in the long run, but I could barely last 20 minutes on Zwift yesterday morning, and Hour of Power this morning was an exercise in mental stamina (I was sure I wouldn’t be able to hold on). It’s probably about time I got onto Training Peaks and learn about training stress scores – it might be useful, or it might scare the crap out of me. It’s easy to get caught up and bored looking at numbers all the time, but I’m keen to do some high intensity racing in the next few months, so training appropriately and being more conservative with mammoth rides will only help.
