FasCat Tour Plan: Day 1 - Field Test

I've decided to keeps things interesting this month so I will complete FasCat's Tour De France plan written by co worker Carson. He built a program based on the stages in the Tour and the demands. Of course everything is cut down in duration and intensity so the average person with a job and a family can complete it.  Here is a link of the plan on Velonews. http://velonews.competitor.com/2014/06/training-center/on-the-bike/tour-training-plan_333135


Today was the 20 minute Field Test. I'm not one who really likes to do these. I always have an idea of what my threshold is through riding. I've been assuming lately that my FTP is around 340 watts.

 Here in central Indiana there is no 20 minute climb. So to keep things more interesting during this I made a 20 minute loop. This way the wind would always be coming from a different direction, I'd have 4 corners to break things up, and I can always go out and retest on same loop.

 So I went out and cruised for a while and included a 5 minute effort at tempo for warm up. Well after the test my average for 20 minute was 348 watts. But I got caught by some construction and had to slow for 30 seconds with only a 94 watt average. When I cut that out and took at my average it came out to be 356 watts making my threshold right at 340. Dang I'm smart. Yeah maybe I could have gone a little harder, but that is pretty much what I was thinking. Not bad for inconsistent training in the month of June.  

I happened to weigh myself this morning and I was 142 lbs or 64.5 kgs so for watts per Kilogram that puts it at 5.51

Tomorrow is an off day in the plan. YES! Then it will be 24 days straight of riding. I will be riding on the rest days as they do that in the Tour as well. Hopefully I can make it through the plan successfully and don't have an hiccups. But again I have other priorities such as family and work, but I will try. 


















Rode int he new FasCat kit. Pretty stylish.



Always fun to see Personal Records after you hit save on the Garmin.
