Learning On The Fly

As part of the plan that I have downloaded from Joe Friel, today was to be a testing day on my bike. When I was looking at how I was to do that I realised that, I needed to get a good LTHR to set up my zones the way they set them up in The Triathletes Training Bible.So instead of doing the workout in the plan I did a workout to get my LTHR so I can set up my zones in the same fashion that they call to use them. It was interesting to see the differences in the zones when doing it this way. There wasn’t alot of higher end differences, but zone 2 gave me a wider and higher range for my heart rate. Becky helped my by recording my times and heart rate at each half mile as I increased my mph on each ‘lap’. So my LTHR turned out to be 169, a one point lowering than last year. After finishing the testing part I finished out the hour in a zone 2 finish.

I really want a CylceOps G3 power meter hub, but they just are so damned expensive! I had an idea of how to shuffle a few funds $$$ around to do it, but I am just not so sure I should. What I need to do is sell this damn set of D.W. drums and use that money! If ya know anyone that is looking for a good deal on a great drum kit, let me know. Hey Steve Schlegel, you ought to take up the drums dude! I got a deal for ya!!!!!

Gotta go with the all time greatest drum solo!
