So excited to announce this year’s edition of Fit & Festive! Starts on December 11th and ends on January 1st!
Along with F&F mindset themes, I’d love to incorporate everyone’s favorite workout styles. Please post below a few of your favorite workouts. It can be a specific workout (by name) or simply a brief description of the types of intervals you enjoy the most.
Woohoo! I think my favorite workouts are the pyramid ones.
I enjoy the short hard intervals and/or workouts like Boa Constrictor.
I like 30/30s, and also workouts outside workout mode like the one you directed us to do a 10 minute tempo block, a 5 minute climb, and 2 minute all out. Also, I liked when you had us riding with the pacer bots for group ride practice. I keep meaning to do a progressive bot ride where I jump from bot to bot for intervals until I get with a bot I can’t keep up with
Its funny as I read these to laugh at how different we all are. Some of the things others like are on my least favorite list lol and a workout outside of a workout mode is sure to be skipped.
Frankly I’m afraid to request anything specific or not mention anything specific I feel like we get rewarded either way I think we all know VO2 is not my jam and spay thing TT or endurance I like better but I’m often in the minority on that
I really wanted to do that one but last week didn’t workout might have to fit it in later
I can’t do threshold blocks. They slay me. I like quick surges. And I like intervals or blocks in odd numbers. I feel like it’s a hill and I’m on the down slope. When they are even in number the visual for me is flat. If that makes any sense.
You know I’m with you on this @PaleGail but I didn’t want to say anything for the reasons you mention!
I’m coming back right in time for Fit and Festive- so I’m hoping for Zone 2 all day long! (We can always dream)
My support crew helping the F&F creative process!
Can you all believe this is the 5th year of F&F? WOW!!!
Wow @Coach_Theia! I guess this is my 4th F&F!
Thanks for the meetup and fun chatter @Coach_Theia @PaleGail My bike is in the living room by the Christmas tree. My cat wanted to join the ride.
I had no idea cats did that!! OMG!!
I had to look twice to see where the cat is @bkolden
@Coach_Theia - They look a lot sweeter than the workouts they create…
@bkolden that’s why I have to have the stand screwed into the floor and tie-off hooks on the ceiling and wall.
Beautiful cat and tree, it makes a wonderful addition to the tree.
Thank you for the nutrition quick guide @Coach_Theia. It’s so nice to have everything I need on a nicely laid out printed page.
@Coach_Theia in the middle of the whole Today’s Plan mess, I wanted to thank you for continuing to provide thoughtful and challenging narratives with each workout. I did F&F #4 today and looked at the 10 minute tempo block before I got on the bike and the negative self talk started. But I went back and read your words “No negotiating with yourself. No assessing how you are feeling. Just do it with your mind fully in the present moment.” and I buckled down and plowed through the block and then to the intervals. I had decided in advance that I would stand for the 30 second VO2 interval and I just did it. Didn’t “negotiate” but just did it. Thank you!
And yes my Tree Cat is at it again! lol
