I was feeling pretty good last night during my commute–amazing what two days off the bike will do for your recovery. During my 69 mile commute I sometimes take a detour and climb a 1.5 mile 6% hill named Newport Coast Dr. Last night I wanted to see if my 5 min number had improved since my last “field test” over a month ago.
HERE IS A SCREEN SHOT FROM TRAINING PEAKS
I weighed 150lbs or 68 kg
my NORMALIZED POWER was 340
340/68 = 5 w/kg
Not bad for an amateur. According to the Coggan power profile chart it is in the grey area between Cat 3 and Cat 2.
