First "real" training session

I want to do AoMM, as I stated in the previous post.  15 weeks....I know if I don't get my ass in gear and start doing SOMETHING, I won't make it past Marion.  So, I went back and looked over my training rides from 2008 & 2009 and have sorta figured out what I need to do.  I hope.

Tonight, despite the unanswered calls from my Dad, a dog that needed some Mommy time, and a cat that was pestering me, I managed to do my first interval session.  It was a very good one...I have learned from years past.  I did 6x3min zone 4 (powertap) intervals this evening.  I did them correctly too. :)  I worked from the low end of zone 4 up to the high end for the last two intervals.  Damn!!!  I love intervals!!!

I can't download my data, as I have a new computer (Macbook Pro) and do not have the thing configured to run any of my Windows programs.  Will take it tomorrow and see if I can get that fixed.  I will also have to do a good recovery ride on the trainer tomorrow.

I'm excited!!!  I just need to keep it up and not let the family/life issues derail me.  I know I can do AoMM, I know how to do the ride, from Spartanburg to Marion, and from Marion to Mitchell.  I know.  And, I know I can do it.

Now, it's time for bed.  Rest, Recover, Get Stronger.

This post has inspired me to get off my bum and do some more indoor riding. I have really been slacking off all January....
