Week 5 Workouts Discussion - Women's Cycling Challenge


#1

Final week!! Exciting workouts! Let’s discuss them here.


#2

Great! I repost my comment here.

Workout 5.1 done!!! I was a bit tired from 2 weekends rides but I liked it a lot, the rapid changes are really similar to what happens outside so it’s really useful to train like that. I started magnesium @Coach_Theia, and already feeling better, Thank you!


#3

I am glad you were able to see how the intervals translate into riding outside! Happy also that the magnesium is making a difference. Make sure you get some good rest and recovery tomorrow!


#4

Absolutely a rest day tomorrow! :rofl:


#5

Hi-I didn’t get Week#5-Thanks!

Just completed 5.1 as well and loved it. I enjoyed the spinups. I have been slightly increasing my FTP too and finding it fine.

My husband has also been inspired and no longer trains in ERG!


#7

Hi @franklim I just sent it again.

@puggles that is so cool!!!


#8

Good afternoon! Really difficult to complete the 10 minutes of over/unders in workout 5.1. I should have rested today.

Once this challenge is completed, is anyone else planning to continue to get fitter, faster, and stronger with Coach Theia?

I am interested! Let’s go at it for another month!:sunglasses:


#9

@mnoyola I’m interested but I wish it was winter here and not summer


#10

@PneeZee even thought its (technically) summer here, i can’t always get in IRL so i want to make the most of my indoor rides
@mnoyola i’m Thinking about being in myself! I’ve seen a difference but have more room to improve for sure!


#11

5.1 done :see_no_evil: I feel like I had a hard time finding my gears today for right cadence/power… :woman_shrugging::see_no_evil: having said that, I had my stem shortened and new saddle yesterday…trying to tweak my bike fit. I’m wondering if that could have been enough to throw me off :woozy_face: or maybe my tired legs just not wanting to cooperate :joy: another great workout though, thx coach :wink:


#12

@Coach_Theia I realize I could do just one between 5.2 and 5.3 this week. Which one would you suggest?


#13

5.3 :slight_smile:


#14

Perfect, thanks!


#15

I got the link and completed 5.1. Thanks! I had to pay close attention to the cadence changes. The intervals and watt targets weren’t hard but the cadence changes were challenging!


#16

Just completed 5.1. Having realised how lazy my right leg was last week during the pedalling skills, I seemed to be really aware of it today and made it work! I Loved it. Thanks coach!


#17

I had a blast completing 5.1, for whatever reason I felt strong today! Go me! Thanks Coach Theia!


#18

5.1 looks easy but gets tricky :wink: nice focus on making it work @franklim, @osteoclinics, @Sylvie and @PneeZee!


#19

@Coach_Theia 5.1 was way tougher than it sounded like! Fewer stars today :joy: i try not to focus on those, but i am so motivated by rewards, even virtual - I know, getting better at cycling is a reward also


#20

Did 5.1 yesterday - loved that one. My legs are super sore today!
