Hard Bike Intervals

Day 125 Swim 33 minutes - 2km, Bike 62 minutes - 31km, Run 40 minutes (water)

My upper body was a bit tired from yesterdays swim so the steady state swim workout today was much harder than I would have liked it to be. After work I did the water run and then a bike wattage interval session.

The bike session started out a bit rough. I did 7 intervals with 6 minutes of easy 100 watt spinning between. 2 of teh 7 intervals were only 2 minutes long at 280+ watts, the other 5 were 280-290 watts for 3 minutes. Ideally I would like to get up to 5 minutes at that level of power output.

At teh end of each interval I was really tired but recovered pretty quickly and after teh final one I decided to run 1km on teh treadmill at my intended IM run pace and it felt pretty good and not too bad (even did it at 1.5% grade just to model teh IM St George opening kilometer.
