[JEP Coaching Scholarship] Report for Week 14 (ending 2012-03-18)

Weekly Overview:
The time change, the cold rainy weather, not feeling all that well, and tasks at work made training difficult this week. The time change means that I now wake up an hour later, and as such, have even less training time in the morning. I just don't ride well in cold weather.

03-12 Monday
Prescribed: 1h30min Z2 ride, 30min stretching session.
Actual: Rode outside for 1h, felt awful. Did a little stretching.

03-13 Tuesday
Prescribed: HIT Session: hill repeats at Huddart Park, plus 30min strength maintenance session.
Actual: 1h stretching session with some kettle bell work, not feeling up to strength maintenance. 45min of efforts on rollers, 2-3min Z5 repeats.

03-14 Wednesday
Prescribed: 90min Z2/Z3 ride, 30min stretching session.
Actual: 90min ride on rollers, 5min stretching.

03-15 Thursday
Prescribed: 1h strength maintenance, 1h30m Tabata efforts (20s on 10s off for 4 minutes).
Actual: Day off. Not feeling up to training at all.

03-16 Friday
Prescribed: 1h30m pedaling in drops, 30min stretching.
Actual: 1h in drops doing Tabatas. No stretching.

03-17 Saturday
Prescribed: 1h30m pre-race openers, 30min stretching.
Actual: Day off.

03-18 Sunday
Prescribed: Bariani Road Race.
Actual: No race. Apparently, as a Cat 2 under 30, there was no field for me to do, and the weather was suspect.

Weekly summary:
Time: 5 h 40 min
Distance: 85 miles
TSS: 419

(Distance and TSS only incorporate rides for which I have power data.)
