Haven't used Training Peaks since my paid subscription ended!
The ride itself was similar in terms of distance, elevation gain and road surface, to what we have been simulating in training.
The only difference being that we had to go full gas 3 times for a total of 2h15.
To compensate for this I did a great taper. During the ride, we were strict to keep all non segment climbs, and there were lots of them, to zone 2.
So it was 80% zones 1 and 2 (5h), 25% zone 3 (2h) and 5% zone 4 (15mins).
Happy with the race prep and perfomance. Now it's time to start focusing on cyclocross!
