Training week ended 8/29/2009

Taper week 1. Went a little hard on the Saturday ride and set a personal best for aparticular course. Couldn’t help myself and it felt good!

Here are the numbers:

107.81 miles, 5:46:35, 4509 ft ascent, 222 watts avg power, 148 bpm avg hr, 5000 calories.

CTL (fitness level) is now at 82 and TSB (balance between fitness and fatigue) is -14.

The plan for next week is to take it  easy. Try to keep the CTL as close to 80 as possible and let the TSB float up into the positive. I’ll probably take some easyish rides on Monday and Wednesday morning and then stay off the bike after that until the event on Saturday.
