I am in the middle of doing a training plan available on Zwift called the TT Tune-Up. I am in my third or forth week now. I am not necessarily following it to a t, but I am doing the plan as they populate. If I feel like doing something different I do and if I feel like riding outside I do. Today was my third Endurance ride. This one was a little more challenging as I have been struggling keeping my cadence above 90 since the knee replacement. Today, on the intervals I was anywhere from 105-110 pretty consistent. It was part of the prescribed workout with keeping the cadence that high. I felt great after the fact with no residual swelling or pain. The below image was taken during the cool-down.
After I got off the bike, I changed and off for my "run". I went for a 2.5 mile walk while listening to a triathlon training podcast. I was in a zone and transitioned quite nice to the run. I am having less and less issues getting off the bike and straightening the leg. It is the same route I walk 4-days a week and for what ever reason today I felt good. I have a 2-mile Strava segment on this route and today I finished 3 seconds slower than my fastest time and I wasn't even trying to walk that fast. Overall it was my fasted for this route. TrainingPeaks gave me four peak performances for todays run.
