Openers on Monday

I did my basic pre-race openers workout Monday, to shock the legs into being ready for a hard workout Tuesday. I was actually toying with the idea of doing threshold intervals, but when I was warming up, my legs just felt dead, so I aborted and did 5 x 1 min on, 2 min off. The 1 minute efforts were between 455 and 464 watts, or pretty damn close to as hard as could go and finish all 5. I highlighted the 13 minute segment containing the intervals to show how much a few hard efforts like this can drive up the normalized power. It was 341 watts.

Today I had much better legs for my 2 x 20's. More on that later. I better get back to work.
