Cycling Analytics is pretty good as well and seems like it has the most active development.
training peaks does this, isn't that what most coaches use anyway since it does all the tracking that wko does?

In CyclingAnalytics you can find your top X-second intervals, or find top X-power intervals and it will give you the times where AP met that number

cyclinganalytics is my favored right now. I liked GC 2.0, but 3.0 is a mess and I couldn't use it.

I stopped paying for strava (was charity anyway) and gave $40 to CA for a year's subscription. Love it.

Correct. TrainingPeaks may have it, but I have never used that software.

In Flagstaff, Arizona without my bike, so hiked this morning instead. 10 miles, 3000 feet of climing to get to the highest peak in Arizona at 12,633 feet. Nice views!

Nice! I love Flagstaff. It's too bad you don't have your bike. There's a hill climb race up Snowbowl tomorrow!

I have a week left on the free trail and am trying to figure out if I should continue to use CA. It's definitely easy to use and has more info than Strava!

I stopped giving money to Strava and started giving money to CA. Strava power analysis has a lot of problems, one of which being no periodization of CP, meaning if you adjust your CP up or down, all your historical ride TSS scores get adjusted too, defeating the purpose.

In WKO you can right click on a workout in the Calendar view, and select "Export to Google Earth". Not integrated but it works!

Got the rollers in the mail, rode them, didn't die!!

Took a few minutes to get the hang of it, but it worked out.

They're the skinny "hotdog" version, a little intimidating at first!

Oh damn! Thats where we stayed last night. I have seriously sore muscles now (calves, quads). Guess I'm not used to climbing on foot lately.

Went on a ride, did some painful stuff. On my cooldown, chatted it up with a paraplegic riding a handcycle. He's one of the dudes in this commercial:

Am at 300mi, 17 hours and 790TSS. Legs are trashed, little too much alcohol at the dinner party last night, but one cup of (team sponsor!) Highnote Coffee, and I'm eager to head out. Caffeine is a wondrous drug.

This will be my 3rd week of a big build block, then next week easy, week after sharpening, then 6/21 the ncnca hillclimb championships. Fitness so good it makes me extra sad that I gained 10lbs from January 1 climb.

What's a colonic cost?

Isn't that a typical week for you?

Decided to do a climb I have been wanting to do for months. Except it was further than I thought and longer than expected. 10 Water Bottles, 2 feeds, 1 dead cell phone, and one fried cyclist.
