Not sure how I pulled a PR out of a low impact ride but I’ll take it!

Seems like this thread is loosing steam. Who’s still putting in the work?

Me!

I'm in week 4 of 5 of the 'Build Your Power Zones' program on Peloton. I can feel the gains for sure and am looking forward to re-taking the FTP test at the end of next week 👍 They suggest rest days between the classes, but I'm just not built that way, so I've been hitting other other classes between.

Ive been pretty consistent as well but being out here in Havasu and not having the peloton here has sucked for my cardio. I have been hitting the gym and running a little but I get so bored on the treadmill. Ive been weight training 4 days a week circuit style so I'm getting a little cardio! Glad to see the rest of you keeping it up. I think everyone in here sees it as a lifestyle rather than a means to an end!

Nice job @Hammer

I can't take the Havasu heat any longer so I'm headed home Thursday and Im looking forward to getting back on the peloton, riding the mountain bike and all the other outdoor activities!

Got in a solid back workout today. My wife is on a tear. She took today off. Guessing to give us a chance. New family contest is 7/5 thru Labor Day 9/6.

Just completed the 5 week Power Zone Training Program 👍 Perfect beginning to my vacation which begins NOW! 😁 Packing the jump rope... 😆

Thats awesome! I signed up for that same 5 week program and did an FTP test today. I actually did better than I thought I would. Thanks everyone for keeping the posts going!

Nice PR on your first ride back!!

Thanks! Was dragging ass throughout I stopped pedaling for like two seconds on a hill climb. Lol. I could not believe I got to a PR by one point.

I bought a Peloton last week and it was delivered on Tuesday night. I figured since I have two young kids at home, one on the way, trying to get out to mountain bike for a few hours a week is tough. So far, I'm really liking this and I'm looking forward to trying to weight workouts. I just did a 20 min HIIT ride with Olivia and I can't believe how much is worked me over.

Congrats! I dig the Pelaton. The outdoor running is great too.

Olivia isn't human, she is a tiny ninja assassin robot 😆 She is consistently tough for sure. Some of the other instructors have "tells" that indicate how tough the class is going to be. If Robin Arzon is wearing yellow, look out legs. Also, the higher Kendall Toole's hair is, the harder the class.

View attachment 1058485 This one hurt! 47 miles on my 47th bday.

I'd need a stretcher or another 2-3 hours to do that. You're a machine!

I once tackled 35 miles with 4500 ft. elevation gain in CHWP. I had leg cramps somewhere around 25 miles from all the climbing and had put my tail between my legs and walk (limp 5 miles) out of there.

Hahaha! That’s funny! I did her EDM 20 minute ride as my first one and it got me. But nothing compared to Olivia. Most of my buddies were recommending trainers, mainly based off appearance and less about quality of workout lol
