Week 2 Wokouts Discussion - Women's Cycling Challenge


#1

Welcome to week #2 of the WCC! We have many exciting workouts in store for you this week.

I have shared the training plan with those who submitted their survey by 8:00 PM US Central on Sunday (2:00 AM GMT Monday). I will download any surveys sent after that time on Monday mid-day my time and will share the plan shortly thereafter.

Lets’ use this thread to discuss workouts in week 2!

I loved week 1 workouts. I tend to push big gears with a slower cadence. These workouts forced me out of my comfort zone, which I need. With each workout it was easier to hit the higher cadence. I can’t wait to complete week 2. Thank you for this opportunity!

Hello, @Coach_Theia, I received your email for week 2. But it’s not linking into Training Peaks. I’m not sure what I may have done. Week 1 worked perfectly. Any suggestions??


#5

Hi @Coach_Theia I have the same problem as @susannelindsey I have accepted the program but it is not linking to TP. :woman_shrugging:


#6

HI @Coach_Theia Me too, not linking to TP :see_no_evil:


#7

Hi all
Once I accepted week 2, I had to go to Training plans and add it to calendar.

@claire.golding Hi Claire, where did you get the option to Add it to the Calendar please?


#9

@claire.golding That’s ok, I’ve worked it out :woman_facepalming: It’s in the Training Plan Library and you then apply it to the calendar :slight_smile:

Hi @Coach_Theia Really enjoying the workouts and appreciate the time and effort you are putting in with us. For week 2, I have a 67 mile Fondo on Sunday 2 June (my first Fondo and longest ride to date :open_mouth:) and I think I’d be pushed physically to do all three workouts and the Fondo so is it ok if I replace one of the rides with the Fondo and which workout would you suggest I drop? Many thanks, Sue


#17

Thank you @Coach_Theia. So sorry I am late submitting my rides, Ispent ages figuring it out how to do it! I am ready for week 2. Can you forward it to me asap. Thank you.


#18

Thanks for the suggestions ladies :pray:. I got this sorted out too. Did the first workout tonight and it was quite tough!


#19

Hi @watsonsue thanks for your kind words! Drop workout 2.3 and complete the other two early in the week if you can (Mon/Wed), then take it easy before the Fondo. Looking forward to hearing how it goes! Be mindful of your hydration and nutrition to keep you going. Some good tips here.

@osteoclinics as mentioned above, I will do the next survey download mid-day US Central time. I don’t have access to my desktop before then. I am sorry you had to spend so much time figuring it out… At least you know what to do for next time!
