CYCLING (track)
1/2 hour warm-up

  1. 5 Lap Scratch
  2. 8 Lap Win-n-Out
  3. 10 Lap Snowball

I raced with a moderate gear this week – up considerably from the small gears I’ve been using with the track’s  loaner bikes.  It had a bigger impact on my results than I expected.  I didn’t get buried while trying to maintain speed and cadence like previous races.  In my first race I took too long responding to an attack.  Previously I would have been left trying to cover a gap.  This time I was able to get around several riders and cover some breaks.     I can maintain pack placement but still don’t have the conditioning to make quick accelerations for the sprint.    It was good seeing some progress.  I will continue using moderate gearing between 90″ and 100″.
