Chipping away at my elevation goal before it gets too cold. Today’s 6C was quite comfortable with a lower wind than we’ve had recently.
I did some flat distance in the middle and picked two longish straight stretches to work on holding a higher power level. 1.6km in the 4th interval I started out too hot at 400+ watts and could only hold the big power for about 500 before backing off to the 200s. A bit over 2km in the 6th interval I took a more balanced approach and stayed right around 200 watts for the duration.
Then back home with a couple of steeper climbs. Made it back just in time to inspect this year’s stone work: a new garden, rain barrel pedestals, and reworking a bit of the patio.
