What types of Stats to Follow
I need some help on this. I just got a new cyclecomputer. first time using one. It has cadence reading, HRT, Power meter etc
I need to know what type of Cadence i should be pushing and power and heart rate zone.
I am going to test it out on a time trial tomorrow
a 20km TT, has one minor hill in it, and rest mostly flat in 4 different directions- out and back
i did same course back in May 1 2013 which was my first TT in 10 years.
My time then was 35.34 as in 35 minutes and 34 seconds, which was very slow, but i have to give myself credit since it was my first,
so i want to beat it under 35 minutes. I am age 35 years male and decent shape
So more less what type of ball park figure should i look for in my stats when riding? what type of cadence should i maintain and power and heart rate
Right now while I am sitting at the computer here my heartrate is 75BPM. this is from sitting for a over an hour here.
So some suggestions might help. Not sure what my MAX HRT is, i have to go on a hard ride to figure that out i guess, but more less some help
just recently i been doing my last few TT's doing a higher gear, cadence, spinning more and its helping .
So all the help i can get on this would be great
