I KNOW IT'S BOLD TO SAY NOBODY CAN KEEP UP WITH ME ON MY EASY DAYS. If it weren't true, I wouldn't make such an utterly outrageous claim. But it is a cold hard reality that my easy day pace is just too...
... brutally slow.
Somehow I have garnered the underserved reputation of hauling boodwah all the time. Its unfortunate because there's a whole slew of peeps I'd love to ride with on my easy days.
Every now and again someone will tag along... they are totally unprepared for the insanely slow pace. They never come back, dawgawnit.
Here's an easy way to remember my formula. Think of a 24 hour day.
- 8 hours for work
- 8 hours for living
- 8 hours for sleep
That's basically my training week.
- 1/3 intensity - 2 days, Tuesday and Saturday
- 1/3 tempo - 2 days, Wednesday and Friday
- 1/3 easy - 2 days or 1 day, Monday and maybe Thursday
The fact is, it's even easier than that because Friday is a lot more like Monday. Easy with a few short efforts, at most.
Well, just look at today (Monday): 120 bpm, 10.1 mph... Strava suggests I stay under 360 for recovery, todays ride was 27.
Here's the money -> Only by going slow can we ever hope to truly haulbooty when it matters.
Where ya gonna keep money like that? In your soul.
Where ya gonna keep your greenbacks, c cards, and ID?
Right here in the only wallet made from bicycle innertubes.
You do know why this is the perfect material right? Well, because it's water and sweat resistant and because it holds everything you need when on the go...
... but the best part is the rubber is super grippy, and once it's in your jersey pocket it will never ever ever ever come out on it's own.
Best part... it's $20 delivered to your mailbox. Including shipping. Crazy, I know.
