Monday – Day off. Walk around the office pretending not to be totally wasted from yesterdays race. Hangovers are acceptable even a badge of honor in some places but folks just can’t figure sweat on the forehead, fatigue, and dehydration when it doesn’t involve alcohol.
Tuesday – Short bursts, sprints. Power hills if you got em, power out of stop signs (mini Mosers – Mosers = power a large gear from a dead stop up to a sprint), sprint against cars or messengers, draft anything you can latch onto. No long efforts unless you feel good.
Wednesday – Long steady or whatever the hell you want/need/feel.
Take a longer route if you can.
Thursday – Try to keep a high steady pace. Steady accelerations whenever pace is broken. Take a longer route if you can.
Friday – Easy day, try to keep below 80% effort, unless of course you need to dispatch some Triathalete’s or chase down a “hey faggot” redneck.
