Since Michelle doesn’t eat chicken, I had today’s pizza all to myself. At first it looked rather bland, so I added some extra bacon and avocado. However, I shouldn’t have judged a book by it’s cover, since it was actually pretty tasty.
Workouts were good – I did almost 3 hours early in the morning and then a short ride outside on the fatbike. One of my key metrics on the bike is “power at low heart rate” i.e. what my power output is at a specific (an low) heart rate; in my case 135 bpm. I tested it on today’s indoor ride, and I was getting around 250 watts @ 135 bpm, which is good. That means I’m not overly fatigued, and is a green flag to train hard if I want to. I also use the same benchmark after a big race, and I only return to normal training once my power:HR returns to what it was before the race.
