Bike – Leader TT 53-34 x 11-21 Ksyrium wheels

I wouldn’t say today was a waste because it was an incredible workout. The trainer I was on was completely out of whack which was upsetting because I felt SO good on my warm up and I really wanted to match my PR from last week.

My first mile I normally average about 350 watts. Today? 210.

Yes… 210 watts but I was working SO hard to do it. At first I thought it was me, or the bike. I checked my brakes… where they rubbing? Nope.

Then we hit the first hill and my heart rate is at 187 and I’m pulling 240 watts. Then I knew something was wrong. I got off the bike to talk to Devin, Lang moved some wires around and it didn’t seem to do anything. I decided to just tough it out and man it wiped me out. It really felt like I had DOUBLE the resistance.

By the time I finally finished (dead last) I was shaking and dripping with sweat.

Ive decided this will most likely by my last indoor TT. We’ll see how the weather goes and how I perform this Sunday for the Frostbite TT up in Snohomish.

To sum up today in a word… meh.
