I had intended to go out for about 40 miles or so today, and although it wasn’t snowing when I got out of bed, it was very cold, so I just decided not to bother! Instead I did a session on the rollers focused on hitting my Sweet Spot. For me the top end of my Sweet Spot zone is 286 Watts, and so that’s the average wattage I aimed for during the session. I Haven’t been on the rollers for a few weeks, and so I did lose a bit of concentration at one point, trying to switch screens on my Garmin and wipe my runny nose at the same time, but a quick stop has no real impact on the numbers in any case. And I was back on at target almost immediately. But it reminded me how focused you need to be on Rollers compared to a Turbo Trainer. I had a little flourish on the last interval to take my average up to 290 watts for the last 15 mins. Slightly over my target, but I felt like I wanted to “beat” it, and the music in my ears was encouraging me on! So there!!!
A good session, although a decent amount of HR drift over the three Intervals. Some stats below highlighting Average HR for the session, you can see how each interval increased my average HR, I have a max of 187 bpm.
