I had a tough ride this morning. I tried my best to stay with the workout but I think the anaerobic intervals was just a bit too much for me right now. I did have pain in the knee and didn't want to push through it. The workout included 4 x 30 seconds @ 130% FTP interval followed by a 2 minute increase to 150% FTP. I wasn't able to stay sitting during the increase in power during the last two intervals and had to stand to make it through. After completing these 4 intervals I had a 7 minute rest period at 50% power before starting the next set of four anaerobic intervals. This set was set for 2 minutes each with a 2 minute recovery. The intervals were set for 150%, 145%, 135%, and 135% FTP. I wasn't able to make it through the seconds set of intervals. Here is what power output looked like. It wasn't worth the effort to push through the workout.
I then headed out for my normal 2.5 mile walk. It felt good however I did have a few twinges in the knee. I listened to a podcast by triathlon taren interviewing Matt Chrabot. I did end up walking a little faster than I intended at a 15:42 pace, but I don't really pay attention to pace.
Happy Training Everyone.
