I did a 30 min TT test about a month ago and got LT 162. I know that I can go for hours at 150-155 and I burn out after about 10 min at 170. So 162 sounds about right.
To my mind, 85% of 162 is low...

Average speed is an utterly useless indicator, because of hills and wind. Riding on a bicycle, you feel every hill even if you never noticed that it was there before. A measly 2% grade that you'd...

Yes, it is reasonable, and it is authoritative, all I'm saying is that it has a rather specific focus.

If this isn't some kind of super-serious event and no one cares whether you're taking any banned substances, I'd suggest Provigil (modafinil), assuming you can get it. It seems to me that starting an...
