I set out to do a 2x20' by feel at a solid Z4 this morning, but saw a fast looking guy on a TT bike at the end of my first interval so I kept going. Nothing like some cat 6 racing! He sat up before I reeled him in anyway.

Ended up with 1x40' at 94%, which is whatever. Pretty uncomfortable with my right hand continuing to go numb, and a persistent saddle sore that made me get out of the saddle a lot. That's OK!

I'm happy with the right and it fits right in with my training plans. I have no serious races left on my calendar for the year, just having fun out there. I've been low TSS for 5 weeks now and I want to put in a solid 3 week block just to give me some speed and fitness for weekly track races and bump my fitness before I take some time off the bike to travel with my fiancee.
