thanks, all. i pinned on a # so it was a race.
just this morning i realized a bit more context for that effort, pre- vs post-surgery:
my 10' power during the 2nd half of that ~20' effort the other night was 10% below what i did during a 10' TT a few days before surgery. for that standalone 10' TT i was generally rested & it was at lower elevation. it was everything i had on that day, but it wasn't a particularly great effort as it required a high vo2max component and i'd not built fully back up after my clavicle surgery.
well, being 7 or 10% off a really good effort is nothing to complain about. it will be interesting to see how things change in another 1-2 weeks and in a month. kinda sorta thinking about a small stage race in 7 days.
