Tropical Storm Darby interrupted most outdoor plans today.
~2x (6min ramp 75-90%)
~2x (4min 80%/2min 95%)
~12min ramp 80-95%
~2x (5min 80%/1min 105%)
~6x (2min hill 3% grade/1min easy)
The result was my power profile looking like this...
Followed the ride with a 4 mile run. My goal was just to click off 9min pace, and I did that, but it felt harder than I was hoping it would. I didn't wear a HR monitor but it just felt like a bigger effort than what I could hold for 26 miles off a 112 mile ride. So I think a 4 hour marathon on Saturday is rather unrealistic! My thought, really, is that I will run without a watch and go by feel because I think I am quite good at knowing what is a sustainable effort vs what is not, and I don't want to piss myself off by looking at numbers that I don't like.
I spent much of the rest of the day tracking Ironman races (GO ANN MARIE!!!!) and answering emails and being trapped under my cat. Sort of perfect way to spend a stormy Sunday.
