Today was one of those days when I woke up tired, stayed tired all day, and will probably sleep tired.
And it all happened last night.
No, it wasn’t her. It was a him. Julian, our spinning instructor.
He’s decided that winter is over, and we’re moving from base-building zone 3 rides to character-building zone 4 (and above) rides. My legs begged to differ.
If this was a road ride, I would have spent the first long interval tagging along, the second one barely hanging on, and the third seeing them ride off in the distance. Thankfully, it wasn’t. So, I was able to sit up for a couple of minutes, and then get back in the flow.
I never got into the high zone 4 that we were supposed to ride in in the 3rd interval. Barely got to 4.2 before the legs gave out. I’m far from the days when the heart used to be punching through the top end of zone 4 :(
At least I averaged 230+ watt for the non-recovery intervals.
Anyway, I ended up knackered. Completely.
Here’s to hoping that it’ll only get better from here.
