After a couple of big weeks on the bike (ending Sunday) and a couple of massive negative TSB plummets, I'm in the midst of an easy week.
I did a quick turbo session yesterday with some short sweetspot intervals and it was fucking terrible. HR was soaring and every pedal stroke was trauma. Am off to Pyrenees on Saturday so going to do a short and easy session tomorrow to keep the legs moving, nothing more.
Was a bit concerning at how hard i found the session yesterday, but the recovery app thing on the garmin suggested i needed more recovery time from that than i did after my big ride Sunday. Hopefuly i've HTFUd in time for next week.
The last few days are the first in weeks where my TSB has increased for more than about 3 consecutive days, and the first time it's been above zero for a few days in a row! I've been feeling like a bit of a dead man walking since Sunday, but am starting to get my shit together today, like am actually capable of standing up and holding a conversation and not just wanting to sleep and eat all day, like i did earlier in the week.
I was aiming for the old 'supercompensation' knowing that I was going to take it easy this week, just hope I didn't push it one step too far.
