I am starting to get used to training “for real” instead of just staying in shape. My Tuesday Z4 session felt pretty dreadful, however, I had very poor previous night of sleep so no surprises there. My right shoulder is still feeling iffy so I did some very light shoulder exercises and some bench press to substitute for the upper body part of my weights routine. I am starting a new weight program on Tuesday, I will keep you posted as soon it is finalized.
The weekly group ride was a very nice double paceline at about Z2/3 for more than 2h. It was cold and sunny with almost no wind. It will be freezing so I will train almost exclusive indoors the coming week.
In order to fit all that I want into a training week I will be taking Sundays off instead of Monday. My 2013 training schedule is almost complete so I will post it in the coming day or two.
