This past Sunday was a great day
I competed in my first race since starting thesufferfest 12 week eSports racing plan 2 weeks ago. I added on yoga, strength and mental training to my calendar on top of the workouts.
Today I hit TWO milestones
My 1st was getting on the podium in a Cat D Zwift Race! I placed 2nd per Zwiftpower and hit a new record for my 5 min power (2.7 w/kg at 230 watts)!!!
My 2nd came from the last minute decision to choose to suffer more and goin a targeted 2 w/kg group ride . I planned on giving it my best 20 min effort and dropping off.
Wellll…I not only destroyed that 20 min effort and got 2.4 w/kg at 203w BUT I finished the hour at 2.3 w/kg at 191w!!!
My weakness per my 1st 4DP Full Frontal test was sustained efforts, so this really does mean the world to me that I accomplished this.
According to Zwift my FTP rose from 144-193!!! I also got a top 10 finish out of 78 people per Zwift Power!
I dug deep for the race right before this and believed in myself enough to pull off this monumental effort! I couldn’t be happier
My reward for this accomplishment was time in the hammock. This relaxation was earned today
