Yeah, them stupid ‘Reply’ buttons - confusing there’s two of them
My TL (or fitness score, ATL, CTL, or whatever you want to call it) is what it is. It’s not a goal and I’m not looking to see how far I can get it up or how long I can maintain it.
As stated, it takes on average 3 hours at 70% intensity to get there. Every day.
My riding is basically all sweet spot, so I’m a one trick pony. Big engine and time to kill.
It has been on this level pretty much for the last 6 months or something. I was training for my Giro end of July, 11 days of climbing, including the Maratona.
The only way I could train for altitude and durability was by upping my TL steadily, as I have no mountains to train on and I’m sure as hell not going to sit inside to mimic hours of climbing, indoor on my Neo all the time, while it’s perfect outdoor cycling weather.
After my Giro, I had another cataract surgery, but as I’m used to it, I picked up training at the same level a week later.
I have no life
But seriously, I will probably reduce it over the coming months, as there’s not much to train for right now. Maybe my wife will sanction another trip to the Alps next summer.
