Sorry it’s been so long since the last update, my life has been consumed with training and racing.

Overall, the racing has been progressing well. I’ve made plenty of dumb mistakes this season, but I think I’ve got all the obvious ones behind me!

Nate, one of our P12 riders, has reset my entire training program again! I’m now set for more “Hard Core Riding” and more recovery riding. By doing both extremes more, I’ll be more ready to take on the demands of the peloton while staying fresh for races on the weekends and, so far, it’s working incredibly well. I’ve already seen my power go up across the board:

5sec – 1450 +11%
1min – 570 +11.5%
5min – 301 +2.5%
20min – 250 +3%

I figure I’ll keep this up until I plateau later this season, probably mid June sometime, and then I’ll need to revert to a short summer base training before the big races at the end of the season.

This weekend: Wheels of Thunder Circuit Race. The course looks to be mostly flat with a few rollers, which means we’ll probably see a bunch sprint at the end as long as we don’t see any crazy wind. Perfect for my riding style.

Till next time.
