Two hour training ride today from the shop to Dana Point. 38 miles round trip with about 1,200 feet of gain. I tried to maintain a good tempo with hard efforts mixed in. My Normalized Power for the 2 hour ride was 248 watts (3.69 w/kg). While in Dana Point I attempted and accomplished besting my 1 minute peak power number. It was 534 now it is 609 watts (9.07 w/kg).
I am really happy with my 1 minute peak power number of 609 watts it’s almost half-way into the Cat 2 range. The hill I performed this 1 minute number was really steep (about 10%) which helped me keep high power. Now I would like to try a one minute test on a shallow hill of maybe 6% grade.
