Tuesday Night Crit Aug 18

Raced 9 laps with the main pack until my diaphragm start cramping up and my legs cannot turn the pedals at that rate. Another 2 laps or so and I could have finished with them.

Normalized power is 279W for just over 20 minutes. Too bad the season is coming to an end...

Horseshoe Bay Aug 12

I have done this ride a couple of times this year. The ride really starts once we passed Dundarave. With a bigger group the pace is higher and I will get dropped around Lighthouse Park and ride tempo the rest of the way. Today there were only two of us and Joe was nice enough to work with my tempo. Here is the section starting from Dundarave:

I went as hard as I could and we even have a sprint finish! Average power was 233W and normalized power is 272! That is definitely a personal best.

Thursday Crit Aug 6

First time racing in the 3/4s. Power is actually lower (average 216 normalize 234) than this race but pace (41.9kph)is higher. There were a lot of big guns out there so I know I have no business sticking my nose in front. I was just "swimming" up the peloton to get a good position and drifting down slowly. Rinse and repeat for the whole race. I felt good and confident that I can hang with the big boys for the whole duration.
