Day Six: Matt Wilpers 30 Power Zone Endurance 6.26.17
I woke up sore. I rarely get sore. I don't think it isn't that I work hard or that I am bad a#$. I figure it is some sort to chemical thing... maybe some sort of anti-inflammatory circulation thing. I rarely got injured doing endurance sports either. Go figure. I'm sore in my Piriformis.
But after yesterday's push to PR. I knew I needed a recovery workout. So, I dialed up Matt Wilpers on demand. He is all about power zone training which I was familiar with as a cyclist before Peloton and is a bit of real world sports that he's brought into the PeloCommunity. Some people use heart rate to make sure they are keeping themselves in check during a recovery workout and not blowing up too hard, Wilpers often uses Power Zones or Your Output # in the middle of your screen.
For the most part, my heart rate numbers for endurance zones align with Wilpers's zone output numbers so it is kind of the same, but there are issues with heart rate, especially if were as beat as I was before this ride.
But, I felt great after. As I always do. It is good to keep that in mind. Hopefully, this little nugget of a workout will freshen up my legs for tomorrow's ride.
