Crap night’s sleep with the dog bizarrely whining all night in her cage. I refuse to relent (bit like controlled crying for the kids when they were tiny) but Kirst cracked after 2 hours. Meant I woke this am feeling knackered. Drop Claudie for the bus on the scooter in the driving rain and, feeling completely down, decided to punish myself on the indoor trainer by doing “The Wringer” as the Zwift training session. It’s a killer - 30s intervals at max Watts (470W, based on my old FTP) with decreasing rest periods. 45mins all up. Sweated so much I almost fainted getting off the bike. But got some happy hormones from punishing myself.
Decided this should be the plan going forward. Like July-November last year, mix the running with cycling but include some high intensity stuff in there. It causes no injury reaction and still tests the HR.
