My training this year has been going quite well. I’ve reduced the amount of miles or hours and I’m training with more intensity. On Friday I went on a solo two-hour training ride. I rode the Friday loop with the a training goal of holding a minimum of 3.5 w/kg or 238 watts. I achieved my training goal. I held 3.47 w/kg for the two-hour training session. On the return, I went up Newport Coast Drive. Below you will find charts of the complete ride, my best 60 minutes, and finally my new PR on Newport Coast Dr (1.5 mile 460 elevation gain average grade of 6%). All data collected on an 7900 SRM Wireless Crankset Power Meter with PowerControl 7 head unit.
