TT Strength: 2 MS:

A. (3x) 12 min. Steady, 3 min. Mod Hard. Continuous MS. High cadence.
B. (4x) 8 min. Big Gear (65-75 rpm) Mod Hard on 2 min. recovery.

Good ride with the exception of getting a wasp sting just above my right ear. Something flew (or I ran into) into my helment about 1 minute into the 3rd 8 min. Big Gear interval. I left it alone hoping it would find it's way out. After 3 minutes I lost my patience and shook my head and it got me. Hurt like heck. Stopped it right there and headed home. 1st time that has ever happened to me on a ride. Another lesson learned. All is not lost. At least I was able to get results from the 3x (12 min. Steady, 3 min. Mod Hard) intervals. Results were (average HR, speed):

130bpm, 19.37mph

Results for the 2.5x Big Gears Intervals were (average HR, speed):

1st: 137bpm, 20.7mph
2nd: 136bpm, 20.0mph
3rd (short): 134bpm, 19.7mph

My guess is that a little wind kicked in there at the end.

BT software won't load data directly from my Garmin. Says that it can't detect a device. Yet TP and Garmin Training Center software have no problem. I don't get it? It worked Tuesday and nothing has changed on my computer.

Colonoscopy day.  Thought I was going to get a swim in but the doctor told me otherwise.

Aerobic Threshold (AeT) Benchmarking: Wanted to get back out on the bike so I did this workout rather than a swim. Have a colonoscopy on Monday morning so thought it might be easier to swim on Monday afternoon rather than ride. Did 4 intervals (approx. 18 mins) benchmarking what is likely to be HIM bike effort. Results were (average HR, speed):

1st: 130, 18.9mph
2nd: 130, 19.3mph
3rd: 126,19.0mph
4th: 126, 18.8mph

Garmie is working, YES!!!. Still loving the bike.

Aerobic Threshold (AeT) Benchmarking: Cut the ride a little short. Pleased with how the head felt during the ride. Not dizzy, I was really worried about dizziness. However, I did start to get a headache at the end. I believe that was due to dehydrated. Ran out of water.

The day didn't start out well. Garmin would not power up. So, the distance on the ride is probably right or very close (I've done this loop many times). The actual time maybe off (just looked at the time when I left the house and when I got back). Also, I had zero HR feedback so the entire ride was done on RPE.

Very, very happy with the bike. Handles really well and it's fast. Unfortunately I don't really know how fast I was going during the Steady intervals (no Garmin). Didn't experience any aches or pains with the legs during the ride which was a huge relief. Lower back got a little tight but that always happens when I ride aero over an hour.

Another Easy precautionary day.  How I felt during the spin on Thursday bothered me.  Saturday is a big training day.
