    72 miles, 7500'

    That was probably close to the most aggressive fight for position I've seen - maybe 28 or 29 mph, but still just slow enough that guys could move around and get aggressive. I think only Snelling and...

    An hour and a half recovery ride yesterday.

    An hour and a half pretty easy today, first ride ever with HR.
    Started out with a few minutes each at 120, 160, 200, 240, and 280 just to try to get...

    I think it might be time to reset. I hear 3 months of build is standard anyway, and I think my best was last weekend (highest NP in a race and felt great). Then this weekend has been up in the air;...

    I did the Early Bird clinics. They were fun, entertaining. But you can't just take that into a race. We did a "cornering clinic" and the race immediately following had bad cornering throughout. ...

    The only PR I hit during a race was 5" (and maybe 30'+, but I haven't kept track of those)
    1' is always FAR lower during races.

    When I was doing 5' intervals I would go all out on most of them. Naturally the first was 20 watts higher than the rest, and the last was usually down near threshold. It just seems like a single,...

    Ha. I probably wouldn't be racing if I had to get "certified".

    Only reason I am racing is because I was allowed to just show up, buy a one day license and try it out to see how I liked it.

    Not bad data, my time corresponds to the power. Even Strava's estimate was only 2 watts off. The 343 was a best-ever. This is my monthly all-out effort on this hill - I do it after recovery week. ...

    Yes. Especially when I'm not working, and have time to think about it and put it off. And more especially when I wake up at 4:30 to drive to a race, I think racing sounds like a horrible idea. ...

    Yeah, time sucked as well. I was actually wondering how often you climb all out, and what your experience is with variability even when you think you feel good. I mean, my climbing will vary by 60...

    Ah, I didn't see the 85% comment. Yeah 3' intervals at 85% are fine if you are in base and riding for several hours. Generally intervals are interpreted to be above FTP though.

    I was 175 (worked out a lot) back in the day, and have been almost exactly 165 for many years. Whenever I mention power/weight, climbing weight my wife seems very...
