Training update

Well, just done another of my 'stepped' sessions - 5 mins in increasingly large gears. This time I completed 6 'steps', but more important the numbers were bigger than ever (watts, kph etc). Even with warm up and warm down, this session only took 50 mins. But it is aimed at pure quality. Thankfully, I felt good and was able to do the whole lot without feeling like I was hanging on. It was tempting to push for anoter 'step' but I am adding one each week, so have stuck firmly to the plan. Something appears to be going right. I just hope it lasts.

Show off!

Well, maybe. But what I'm really doing here is placing myself in a dodgy position where I won't have any excuses.

As I say, though, it's a step in the dark really because my training quantity is alarmingly low. Does that count as a potential excuse?

Is this 1' in each of 5 ascending gears for each step?

5 mins in each gear and an additional and bigger geatr added each week. No rest intervals at all, so this week was 6x5mins in ascending gears.
