At the moment was “laborious” day on the bike so after using at a fast however manageable “zone 2” tempo for a bit over 90 minutes I threw in some sooner lengthy intervals to enhance lactate threshold after which some quick sprints with lengthy restoration in between, then completed with a better cooldown. That is what I’ve been doing for laborious day not too long ago, and it feels difficult however nice. Within the phrases of the nice working coach Invoice Bowerman, a very good exercise ought to depart you feeling “exhilarated not exhausted” and this one does.

I did all this on my Corsa recumbent within the configuration with 20″ wheels back and front. I’ve been actually having fun with this, it makes for a compact however quick little bike. It reminds of the primary snug recumbent I ever had, the Rans Rocket, which is a traditional that’s sadly by no means made. The Corsa is analogous however lighter and sooner.
