Feb 28 - H*** Yeah!!!

Wednesday Feb 28

So today I saw power numbers A LOT higher than previous rides while doing my vo2 work. I just got new Dura Ace Pedals which seem to have better power transfer. I can't wait to get my new TTX in a week or so which should be even more stiff than my current ride.

Anyway, hot hot hot here today:

Morning Swim: 1:04, 4250 yards. 400s, 100k, 8x50 build to HARD on 1min. Then Mainset of 4x800 on 11:00 (10:15,10:13,10:07,10:09) Not Blazing Speed, but it was hot in the sun.

Ride after: 6xsugar loaf on about = recovery. After about a 40min warm-up. Here are the numbers!!!

#1 - 2:20, AP 409w, NP 425w, Avg HR 170, Max HR 183
#2 - 2:12, AP 421w, NP 431w, Avg HR 171, Max HR 185
#3 - 2:11, AP 416w, NP 432w, Avg HR 173, Max HR 186
#4 - 2:12, AP 422w, NP 432w, Avg HR 173, Max HR 185
#5 - 2:13, AP 416w, NP 426w, Avg HR 172, Max HR 188 - Starting to crack :)
#6 - 2:16, AP 397w, NP 407w, Avg HR 171, Max HR 185 - Cracked about 2/3 the way up :)

All in all I am VERY happy, considering last year I made 1 repeat of 400w and the time was 2:20 from white mail box to telephone wires across from radio tower..this year much different story. About 85* for the ride.

Evening run after looong nap. 55min and 11 km at the clay trail...EEEASY as it goes.

Ok, time for bed!

Congrats, B. Sounds like you had a killer day.

Are you going with yellow or red on the new ride?
