Is anyone documenting their journey?


#81

I am! I have a blog: https://www.formless.cc
Not too in depth about training, but that could change if that’s something people are into. Mainly just been posting about riding and photography.
Give it a look and let me know what you think!

Added a new blog entry https://sixtyplustimetrialling.wordpress.com/

Software used in 2018. And there is a lot and I dont think I mentioned WKO4

I’ve just started blogging. I’m going to try to do a post each week (or more frequently) - I reckon I can probably get up to the start of the TT season by discussing fit, training, and equipment stuff. I need to do some more work on the thee as it’s a bit sparse right now…

Video can wait (maybe until I start racing!).

Following. If you hope to get to 4 w/kg then you should break the hour for 25

TT is so much about aero. It’s possible to beat 50 minutes with a super slippery position and a helpful course, but I’m not going to be that slippery and you can’t ride those sorts of courses on fixed. The fast courses tend to be dual carriageway with quite a lot of traffic, and I’m not too keen on riding those.
We’ll see how it goes - this year is about discovering what I can do on the fixie. :wink:
Following back - your site is really cool, and there’s a lot to read! :+1:

I can remember in the early 00’s doing some TT’s at stage races where a few of the pros were on TT bike with a fixed gear. And they performed well!

I updated my blog! The cancer meds had me feeling crappy last week and I didn’t take my Ramp Test. But, I got a new bike!

Facinating read @hmaceachran :+1:

I’ve just published my latest post (after a bit of a hiatus!). I have a place at Fred Whitton, which means I have to actually go through with it!

I’ve had a blog for quite some time. Now, I don’t post regularly, but I try to make note of major milestones or failures. It’s set up as more of a diary of my racing and biking adventures. I wanted something I could look back on to reminisce when I’m too old or broken to continue racing.
I’ve enjoyed looking at some of the vlogs and blogs you all have posted.

@occasionalathlete, way to smash the numbers! Can’t believe you keep having to raise the intensity. Not a problem I’ve had, lol! I’m in my build phase now and actually like it more than the base phase.

Keep going from strength to strength!

@heypoolboy78, I struggle with letting go of failed work outs too. I worry about hitting the TSS even if my body is asking for less, not more. Way to try it again though!


#93

Just subscribed this morning while doing my TR session! Keep up the great videos Christie!


#94

I’ve done a number of blogs in the past but I have today started my Trainer Road one for my first plan, blog is a bit basic right now but my first post is about where I am at and the ramp test.

Your videos are very inspiring. I subscribed months ago after stumbling upon your Leadville race videos. Love the Trainer Road integration and following your cycling journey. Congrats on hitting 1K subs. Good luck with the channel!


#99

Ha ha, not a problem I’ve had in the past certainly! This is the most consistent training period I’ve had in years - I’ve not missed a quality working through SSB1 or SSB2 yet! - so it’s not surprising I’m going well.

I also think I bailed too early in my last ramp test. I’m going to try doing it “blind” next time by covering up everything other that cadence and make a motivational playlist specific to the ramp test!

Thanks so much!

Thanks so much! I’ve really enjoyed doing the videos, glad others do too!
