Stage race this weekend:

TT & Crit on Saturday, 88 TSS total

RR on Sunday, 164 TSS and .92 IF for just under 2 hours.

I hit a PR for average power over the 7:00-9:00 range in the time trial yesterday, and also for 2:00 power at the end of the RR today, so I'm feeling pretty good about my fitness right now. This was my 'A' race for the spring, so I guess I timed things fairly well.

Another stage race next weekend, but I don't expect to be all that competitive (racing Masters 40+ for first time). After that, it's vacation to Hawaii in April, and then start building again for the state time trial in June.

Last minute decision to do a stage race this coming weekend. Not sure what to do with myself this week except rest!
Today I rode ez then went on a strenuous hike so I'm guessing it's going to take a couple days to get that out of my legs.

1:45 of pretty easy zone 2 today, 66 TSS. Legs were feeling tight to start but gradually loosened up (I still felt pretty flat though). Weights tomorrow...

What is TSS? What is the scale? I do know where to look it up, but figured I'd get a more realistic definition here.

No more cold, dark rides after work. I could shed a tear. I will not miss this El Nino winter.

I seem to recall (NP/FTP)*100*hours - IF is just NP/FTP

Yesterday rest day, today legs still not fresh of course, but rested enough.
Due to stupid daylight savings it was dark AND cold, and I couldn't bring myself to do hill repeats so did the group ride instead. Always a good workout.

No sympathy here. I just went through 3 1/2 months of that

December and the first half of January were freezing.
