Slow start today. Struggling a bit with holding position on the toes of one foot.
Cardio (Tacx/Strada) 42:00 ahr:148 max:163 shoes: Specialized S Works Mountain
Test of the trainer setup, which is often a bit fussy. This time everything pretty much worked first try. Cadence dropped out a couple of time early, but I think I got that sorted.
Power seemed a bit low, but I was running in slope mode so can’t directly compare to last year. I plan to program in the elevation for the Austin 6/12hr loop. Today I just climbed the elevation expected for one lap of the 10km loop.
First interval I added a gear each of 4 km, then went to the start gear for 1 km. Second interval I increased slope by 1% each kilometres. I was happy to maintain my speed as I upped the slope to 4%.
Third interval I went with gear changes again.
14.8km and 104m of elevation according to the trainer. Max power 236 watts.
