Goal One on my 4 week Journey

Ok I have just hit day 4 of my 7 day fat loss program. Its hard to stay focused sometimes but I just need to do one day at a time... then 2 days off and the next 7 week block begins.

I was a little unsure I was heading in the right direction but I listened Greame's newest post 2 Week Formula for CLUB Success!. It was then reinforced I am going the right way about this.

I figured this would be a good place to start as I have been feeling really unmotivated, I guess probably a little over trained - this has been a mega bummer as the National series starts in just 4 and a half weeks. I got in a good base but I think I just over did it when I began interval and anaerobic work. I am still pretty new at all this so I have plenty to learn.

Using TSS scores off my PowerTap power meter seems to be the most accurate way to quantify the intensity of my workout. I just wish I had taken a little more notice of the scores as I finished a workout instead or recapping at the end of a training cycle.

More info is available here if any is interested in finding out about TSS scores and how is works visit http://www.trainingpeaks.com/trainingwithtechnology/

Training away from home.

I created my new 4 week goal week, that was followed by 3 days living in a hotel for work, just to make sure I am on my game.

This was an awesome opportunity to put some Cyclo-Core workouts to the test.

I was about to fit my stability ball in my luggage, these things are awesome they just take some time to pump up again but I guess this is part of the training. LOL

I have decided to take up Graeme on his challenge.....

A 4 week goal.... and people know about it, then I have to fulfil it.

OK here it is, I am going to increase my Threshold or 30 minute Time Trial average wattage by 15 watts in 4 weeks......

Stagnant Site

Slack I know.

Sorry my blog has been stagnant so long and quite a bit has happened too. I know all this should be documented for others view too.

I have purchased a PowerTap power meter, new bike, testing and training etc, etc.

I must say it is a little hard to fit it all in sometimes and try and keep my girl happy too. LOL
