I’m conflicted about these posts. I totally get that no one gives two shits about my training….except people keep asking me about my training. So rather than provide specific advice to people that will probably be wrong, look at what I do. If you like it, feel free to copy it. Just remember that I don’t claim to have a clue and caveat emptor etc etc 🙂
First, a bit of tongue-in-cheek interpretation of Cicero’s famous words….
I used iMobile Intervals + the KICKR for all of the following sessions. I’m a beta tester for iMobile so I get access to erg control, which is great. Once I set up all of my workouts, it’s a great app.
Sunday: 4hrs Beach Rd with the team then ergo: HOP (hour of power). This is 300w for 2:40, then 420w for 20 secs, repeated 20 times to make an hour. A great session for tweaking threshold.

Monday: Reco, 30mins easy with multiple coffees.
Tuesday: Ergo: 6x10mins @ 350w with 5mins rest. I try not to be a fanboy but watching Gerro’s win provided extra motivation for this session.
Wednesday: 5.5hrs, North Rd Long + 1x SE rep of Arthur’s Seat.
Thursday: Super tired – brought my normal Friday rest day forward.
Friday: Ergo: 8x4mins @ 400w. I’m the best I’ve ever been at this protocol. That means it’s time to change soon – any suggestions?
Saturday: Beach Road, 3hrs.
So there it is – another week done. Phillip Island TT is next Saturday – can’t wait to try out my latest toy. Thanks to Shane for the aero-nerd advice that assisted my selection. It appears that Shane, DK and I will all be on HED front wheels now – market domination!
