Oof. Those hour long recovery rides are a tedious slog, they really are. Sure, it’s a nice easy pace – 4 blocks of 10 minutes at 150w with 2 minute dips in between – but they are soooo boring.
I tried to find some music to keep me occupied, but everything I picked was immediately getting on my nerves. Too slow, too fast, too noisy, too crooner-ish. Bah.
Then I came back into Zwift and found myself surrounded by coco cadence and her cronies.
Anyway, then I swapped over to the GCN Show, followed by another of the GCN episodes where the amateur is prepping for a 312km sportive. I enjoyed that one, as I have done a few other GCN content videos lately, so will make sure I tune in for episodes 2 & 3 next time I have an easier session and some time to kill.
With thoughts turning to doing my next FTP test, and having been a bit brainwashed with the above GCN sponsored content around Wahoo’s rebranding of The Sufferfest (whoops, I forgot the name, the brain washing didn’t work that well), I think I might get back on there and doing a few of the prep sessions.
Honestly, I’m not confident my numbers will have improved. I’d be disappointed if they have dropped, though I strongly suspect I’ve platued somewhat. That’s how I feel, anyway. Maybe some directed training sessions could lift me up… something to think on.
