Join Coach Troy Jacobson and 200 athletes from the Minnesota cycling community for a 30 minute 'Time Saver' workout, each designed to focus on a specific area of your fitness while saving TIME.

Workout 'A' - Technique: This 30 minute technique session includes one legged drill work and high cadence pedaling to maximize your leg speed and create better efficiency on the bike.

Workout 'B' - Tempo/Time Trial (TT): Challenge yourself to maintain your maximum output above your anaerobic threshold during a set of leg burning 90 second reps.

Workout 'C' - Sprint/Power: Develop explosive power output and sprinting speed with short bursts of maximum intensity.

This disk includes a short interview with 3-Time Tour De France Winner and cycling legend, Greg LeMond and an overview of Bicycle Maintenance with top bicycle mechanic, Kevin O'Connor.

I did workout B:
so we did a nice 5 min warm up that consisted of 30 sec on 30 sec off, big chain 15 back, then jumped into 7 90/90 that is on off at full speed 90 cadence. Finished by a 2 min rest, 3 min full all out at 80 cadence, then 2 min rest. Wiped out...

Tomorrow is a bike again since I moved my schedule around to swim with the masters team yesterday.
