SUNDAY; 10:30 AM

CYCLING (rolling hills, 85 degrees)
40 miles; avg HR 154; avg speed 15.5 mph

I’ve been off the bike for 2 weeks due to vacation and heavy rain.  Today I increased cadence to improve track performance.  This needs to be a point of emphasis in the off season with specific training sessions at high cadence.  The higher cadence raised my HR and cost some speed.   I also rode an unfamiliar route which reduced some speed.   I pushed my saddle forward about 3/4″ which improved my position and reduced back fatigue.
