Should have ridden but work and more christmas chores upset plans.

Nothing today but looking at houses and christmas chores. Oh, "ice" skating on fake ice ... water on plastic ... L A M E.

Indoor Cycling 1:30:27 [5] 34.1 mi (22.6 mph)
ahr:138 max:174

Plan:75-90 Z2, 2 sets 4x2 AO, 2 min RBI, 8 min RBS
Ok, you are coaching a moron. I was explaining to Christine that the workout today was difficult for me. I started having "quitter" thoughts after the 3rd interval of the first set! I explained that I had to pull out a bunch of my motivational tricks to keep me going and by the 3rd set, I was really having to dig deep. 3rd set? she asked. Yes, I said. Then she pointed out the REAL TP for today. I looked. I'm a dummy. BUT, the good thing is that I was able to finish the 3 sets of 4x2, 2 RBI strong. Keeping the gearing identical through the entire workout with the same resistance on the rollers, I was able to maintain at least a 95 rpm (the threashold I set for myself early in the workout). Last interval was in the low 100's. Legs felt pretty heavy at the start of the workout but limbered up a little. Never felt perky at any time though. The rollers certainly felt sufficiently difficult on the AO workout, so until I get a bit stronger, I have little doubt it can handle my max effort.

Indoor Cycling 1:30:09 [4] 35.83 mi (23.8 mph)
ahr:148 max:177

Plan: 3x9 AB (2B/1A), 5 RBI
Physical: First time ever on rollers tonight - only fell twice!! So, I was a little distracted through the workout tonight but still hit my marks. The rollers I got may have some problems for AO workouts as I was already in the top gear and not hating life. 1 minute at that still put me in Z5, but I had to kick up to over 100 rpm. A little more experience will tell. Rollers were already at max resistance.
Mental: a little flat after a long day at work and not good sleep last night. Luckily, the new toy helped motivate me to get the workout in. The power of "new" is astounding ... even little things can capture my attention. I'm saving some new music choices for January when I'm guessing I'll need it!

Pilates. Effort is ramping up a bit more and starting to feel like this is worth the time.

Indoor Cycling 1:30:38 [4] 27.11 mi (17.9 mph)
ahr:140 max:168

Plan: 3x9 AB (2B/1A), 5 RBI
Physical: Legs felt a little heavy to start but after the warm up, they perked up and did just fine throughout the workout.
Mental: I call tonight moderate motivation due to a rather late start after a long day. As always, feel very happy that I did the work.
