I’m very happy with my latest hard effort up Torrey Pines. I set a Personal Record of 6:03 It is a 1.45 mile hill with an average grade of 5.1% and gains 387 feet (your data may vary)
The first 1:19 seconds I ramped up the power to see how I felt. Avg wattage was 309 or 4.6 w/kg. I felt good so I surged on.
The next 1:20- Goal was to hold 6 w/kg actual 6.2 w/kg or 411 watts. I was trying to hold for 90 seconds but couldn’t. I just exploded. Next time I will try just 6 w/kg and see if I can make it 90 seconds.
Last section 3:16 – Goal was to hold over 4.5 w/kg actual 4.4 w/kg or 294 watts. I couldn’t squeak out 4.5 w/kg 😦
For the Heart Rate people out there notice that once reaches 187 bpm it remains pegged there regardless of my power output.
Average Speed was 14.5 mph
Normalized Power for the entire climb was 333 watts or 5 w/kg
My best 5 minute power was 342 watts or 5.21 w/kg
I guess my next goal would be to go sub 6 minutes!
