After the A race, it's back to build 1. I borrowed a trainer with power display to see how I am doing power-wise.
The first week I did some test to see what type of power I can sustain.
The second week I did this pacing exercise. I was able to do 10-8-8-8-6-6-4 minutes with average power somewhere between 245 and 255.
The third week I did a 12km time trial test run at Iona. I still think I can pace myself better but the numbers are already way better: 19:32 for 12.4km out and back. Average speed 38.1kph. My previous runs in April and May were about 35kph.
This is the best training phase I have had all year. Let's see what the next 3 weeks can do.
