Ice lingers on the streets.
After an unusually warm month, we have been hit with a cold blast, turning the streets at higher elevations into sheets of ice.
I was back on the spinning bike today. I didn’t want to risk a slippery fall. Forty-five minutes at a high cadence (100-125 rpm) in relatively low gears averaging 185 watts. It was supposed to be a recovery ride but I felt like working on speed.
I really need to get more disciplined. During the winter months I need a plan – heavy weights 3 times a week, 5 rides a week (1 long ride, 1 recovery, and 3 intermediate). I need to think about this.
Warmer weather is forecast later in the week. The cold has interrupted my outdoor cycling plan.
