270W x 5min at 65rpm on 5min recovery x 6sets
Here's where i'm at on the turbo. I have some major mile stones which I often can't manage on the first attempt. The latest is 3x10min at 270W with 5min recoveries - so i've broken it down into the above.
Looking in the diary this time last year I was doing 5x5min at 300W but that was all I was focusing on - there's some work to do.
The saddle came down again tonight which felt much better. It looks like i've had the saddle way too high for a long time. Apparently achilles and hamstring problems coming on together are a classic sign. I think i've been measuring it from the wrong place on the saddle all this time - The widest point rather than some arbitrary point further along.
I've also been tinkering around with TSS or training severity score - this is meant to give you an idea of how hard the session was to allow appropriate recovery. This session was 89. Over 150 means rest a day. It was in Sir Bradley Wiggin's biography so it deserves some attention.
