TUESDAY; 7 PM
20 laps warm-up
1.5 Lap (500 meters) Pursuit – 44.72 (25 mph)
6 Lap (2000 meters) Pursuit – 2:57.59 (25.27 mph)
These are personal bests for the season coming off a hard effort on Monday. I went close to full effort from the beginning in the 2k and improved by almost 6 seconds over last month. I was reluctant to go all out in previous 2ks because I thought I’d drop power and speed too soon. I’ve taken almost 19 seconds off my 6 lap time since June. I made an effort to keep a higher cadence in both of these events. It helped seeing my watts and cadence over the past week.
This was a 2 second improvement in the 500 meters from last month, but I’ve got to accelerate off the line better and achieve another 3 mph.
