Long 500 choice warm down.
Whoo - I have gotten pokey. I didn't watch the clock much and this was mostly easy, but the few times I looked at the clock it appears my T-Pace is about 1:39. I know that will come back. Endurance felt good - just not a lot of punch. Elbow felt ok, but I could feel it - interested to see how it feels later today. Oh, and my hamstrings are a little sore, so I guess the strength stuff is working.

Long travel day in the car today - Whoo-hoo. Happy I at least got my swim in before hitting the road.

Well since I forgot my HRM I could go a little harder than I was supposed to and my coach wouldn't know the difference - heh. But, yeah, while the third one was not at an all-out effort, it was fairly hard, but I did still have some gas left in the tank and felt like I could have rode that effort out for 20 minutes - I guess we will find out in a couple of weeks when I do a climbing FTP test. But I really did feel good today.

Perhaps of some interest relative to the "do you think my PM is reading correctly?" discussion with my coach earlier today: On the 3rd interval I matched my PR (7/11/2014) on the climb to the exact second (9:06). Both my average watts and max watts on today's effort were both exactly 10w higher the same all-out effort on 7/11. On 7/11 I weighed 145.6lbs, today I weighed 149.0. So does 4.6lbs equal 10 watts when climbing?

My Quarq flaked out a few weeks ago a could of days before 6 Gap (of course). I took it apart, cleaned everything up really well, re-greased the bolts and torqued them to spec. It was still reading wonky right after, but after a couple of hard rides it has seemed to settle in be reading correctly, and zero offset numbers are consistent. One of these days I am going to put my vector pedals back on and try comparing them again....

As no swim AND since was going to be in the car a lot today I bounced out for a walk and a good stretch especially my hamstrings, glutes and hip rotators. They feel good, but I could still feel a little bit of yesterday's hike in them.

2x ascents up Stone Mountain with 25lbs in a backpack.
Warmed up for about 25 minutes or so before heading up the mountain. Carrying the pack I can't believe I was that much heavier back in December a year ago. Did two ascents of the mountain, then looped back down a piece of the white trail to end. took my pack off and walked and stretched out for about 10 more minutes - felt downright bouncy with the pack off!

Just some time in the saddle.
Decided to ride from the Bud Plant, but it was in the 30s up there in the morning, so did some work and chores first while waiting for the temps to come up a bit. Rolled out later than I would ahve liked, but the weatehr was awesome, so glad I waited a bit in that regard.

Felt super, but didnt pay too much attention to power or effort, so of course I either rode a little to hard or a little too easy = pretty much grey zone the whole way around. Suprisingly few cyclists out - must be because IM Florida is next week and maybe also that the last Secret Handshake Ride for the season is on sunday and they are going to ride out of the Bud Plant. Airport Ride starts up next Sunday.
