My training isn't going horrible but I do need to kick it up a gear. I am riding hard one day a week as planned (indicated in red on the chart) but I only rode 5 days a week; I really need to ride 6 days a week. Something always comes up during the week that prevents me from riding. These distractions are so consistent that I need to plan for them. Starting Monday I will ride 30 minutes every morning. 30 minutes isn't much but riding before I eat will help me train my body to burn stored energy and it will give me an extra 2 1/2 hrs a week. I use to ride 1 hr. everyday before work but it isn't all that fun. If I am miserable training then I kind of lost sight of why I do this; still, I need to get in more hours.
The other problem is I usually only ride 1 hr after work. Riding on the stationary for more than a hour is tough. I need to dig a little deeper and ride for 90 minutes. I will post my training chart in February and I expect to see a lot more hours.
