SUNDAYS OF HELL CHALLENGE
🔥ENDURANCE FUEGO 🔥
Join me at 8am (Eastern time) for a morning session of 90 minutes of endurance with spicy surprises!
I challenge you to combine this session with your favorite outdoor activity in the afternoon to make it a Hell of a Sunday!
Challenge: Complete 2.5 hours of aerobic activity (zone 1 to 2) during the day!
Boost your muscular endurance and aerobic capacity, and improve your energy efficiency!
In order to motivate you to beat this endurance challenge with me, I have a little participation draw for you: join the Strava club and publish your 2 Sunday activities for a chance to win a $50 gift card at the Boutique Vélogare and a bag of Zenit Nutrition energy bars!
The gift card will be randomly picked among those who have done more than 2.5 hours of total activity during each of the Sundays of Hell sessions: January 29th and February 12th.
This challenge is accessible to everyone. The intensity for these sessions (always adjustable) will be lower than we did in the fall. If your schedule doesn't allow you to stay that long, do what you can! The real prize to win is the personal satisfaction of having surpassed yourself. :)
So, are you up for the challenge?! 🔥🔥

Why an endurance session?
Although interval sessions are perfect for maximizing time on the bike and improving your physical condition, low-intensity activity (zone 2) is essential if you want to extend your rides more easily, in addition to all the health benefits that low-intensity exercise provides.
A low-intensity activity works differently than high-intensity intervals. During these sessions, I will address the theme of endurance in order to better understand why to do it and how to integrate it into your sports practice.
By combining this session with a 2nd activity in the afternoon, the idea is to tap into our readily available energy in the morning, in order to force our body to better use other sources of energy for the rest of the day, and to become aware of hydrating and fueling well to support our efforts.
A challenge that remains very accessible by adjusting the intensity. The 2nd activity can be a walk! (Consult your doctor if you have a specific condition.)
I hope this challenge will allow you to break through small mental barriers, gain self-confidence and establish new habits for the rest of the winter :)
The ZWO file will be shared with you closer to the event.
