I rode a 16 mile time trial race this morning which helps to establish a benchmark in terms of fitness-- a specific distance at all out effort in a certain time. I averaged an even 25 mph at about 290 watts for the completely flat course and there was just a little bit of wind. After that we took off and went for a tempo training ride out to Great Falls and back- hitting up some good climbs to really stretch out the legs. It felt good to race and then follow it up with a steady effort. I'll do another time trial (same course) in November so I'm looking forward to improving and having that goal to chase.
Any local rides? by: Bob - 10/22/2007 02:30 PM
Does your team do any local training rides with other people in the Washington DC area? If so let us know as I'd like to be part of that. Thanks.
