Today I went out for a tempo ride with hard efforts on the rollers. There is a Strava segment on the way home. It’s actually the last hill of the ride for me. I felt pretty good so I went for it. My previous best on this hill was 1:38 so when I looked at my Garmin and saw 1:26 I knew I had set a PR and thought I had actually scored a KOM as well. The time I had been chasing was 1:33 and I knew I had beat it. But wouldn’t you know it on the same day that I set the KOM another rider beat it.
Since I have blog followers who train with power I thought I would put up a graph and just highlight a few things. I’m proud of my little PR moment especially since it came a day after a 5 hour century effort yesterday on the tandem.
1. Total Time of Effort — 1:25
2. Average watts for the effort — 457 watts or 6.38 w/kg
3. The two yellow dotted lines– 500 watts and 600 watts
4. Average Cadence- 91 RPM
5. Max Cadence- 104 RPM
6. Breaking the effort in 3 parts
A. 1st 28 seconds Average Power — 396 watts or 5.53 w/kg
B. 2nd 28 Seconds Average Power — 491 watts or 6.85 w/kg
C. 3rd 28 seconds Average Power — 552 watts or 7.70 w/kg
All for now
