Thursday Bike, Run, Weights & Stretch

I drove my bike down to the Endurance Lab for a Lactic Acid threshold test with Adam, the coach this morning. 45 minutes later, all my fingers poked for tiny blood samples and the bike test was over.

I went straight from the bike to the treadmill for a little 15 minute run. It was interesting to me that my legs didn't hurt at all when I started running. No cement legs at all. YEA!

I was disappointed that my legs were burning a bit almost as soon as I started the test though. The test results were more disappointing though. I'm down about 5 watts from where I was in December. I can only think that the broken sleeps I've been having for the last few weeks is to blame. I'm up about 10 watts from this time last year. That's a good thing.

Oh well. It is what it is. Last year, threshold was 165 watts at 137 bpm, this year is 175 watts at 126 bpm.

Maybe I'll forget about the December test. This one year increase is not too bad!

I went to the club on my way home and did my weights and a bunch of stretching. It was a long time after the bike and run. I didn't get that "OH, that's a good stretch" feeling .

Off tomorrow and then a 3 hour bike Saturday and a 29k run with Doris on Sunday. I borrowed a Queen concert video for this weeks bike! (Thanks Vickie)
