”Josefin, You have to pull UP too! Not just pull the pedels down, you need to make sure you pull up just as well, as if you are riding a mountianbike instead of a road bike.”
Yesterday I was traing on my roadbike, doing the traing session my mate had set up in my Garmin; ”Flåsettor”In English ”Gasping Ones”;
- 20 minuntes of warm up
- 1 minute of hard work eg high cadense, hight speed, high of everything 🙂
- 3 min active resting eg bike on with a normal pace
- repeat 8 times
- 20 min of slowing down
I had strawberry jucie with me so I would get a sip of carbs every 3 min ( during ”resting session”) I did the warm up and then the session and my varge speed in the intervalls was above 35 km/per hour and the avarge speed of the whole session was 28,1. Im please since I can feel I get quicker for each session I do. Best of all, bg was perfect, started at 6 and at min 7th interval the CGM was beeping for rapid bg going up so I took a combined bolus and at the ned of the session bg was 7,5! WOOOHHOOO!
My mate who I went mountainbike riding with yesterday and a few weeks ago ( havet got a MTB of my own) encourages me. He is type none but is really doing his best to understrand what Im doing and how my body works. When I went up a hill he noticed my legs mucles and I try to keep that sences as a mantra when Im tired ” USE YOUR MASSIVE LEG MUSCLES”
Im training for Vätternrundan which is a 300 km long bike race around a lake in Sweden which will take place on 13 of June. The weekend prior to that, on the 8 June , I will do the ”HalvVättern” eg 50 % of the distance, 150 km. This event I will do for ”Sockertoppen”, in English Suger Peak. Sockertoppen is the name of the training camp for kids with diabetes type 1 which is held by the cross country skiier Robin Bryntesson. I will partipate as a grown up adult looking after the kids at Sockertoppen this summer.
