Back at Cleves

My second best of the year tonight and just 2 seconds off that time. Probably could have even taken another 5-10 seconds off but wasn't too motivated after I passed the last of the three riders ahead of me at mile 6. Still power was pretty strong at 347.

Ohio USAC State Time Trial

This didn't feel like anything close to what I can do on a good day but it was still good enough to win the 55-59 by about 90 seconds. Super humid, like 100%, and the course was wet from rain. I've ridden it in the past so I knew about all of the turns. Its just hard to build up any momentum on this course. I think a few years ago on a nicer day I rode a 22:30 something so not too much off that but felt slow.

Saturday Ride in Houghton, MI

I did a 90 minute ride with 4x3 minutes, 1 minute between with average power at 341, 351, 363, and 377. On a climb I then did 2 minutes at 426 followed by a minute at 442 with 1 minute between. Then I did a 6 minute climb at 306. Overall, avg power was 234 and NP 277 with 10 minutes at 337, 15 at 331, 20 at 294 and 30 at 276. Wonderful area to ride! Off to Isle Royale tomorrow for some hiking. 

Time Off The Bike

I'll get in a short endurance ride in Houghton, MI today but then I'll be off the bike until next Thursday or Friday and off the grid on Isle Royale National Park, Lake Superior starting Sunday morning. I have hikes of 8, 17, 12 and 10 miles planned for the four days. Then its off to Traverse City where I'll pick up some bigger miles with 2-3 100 mile plus rides.

3x10 steady state done a 1x30 at 323

I did this inside early in the morning since I have a wedding to attend at 10:30 and then my band is the opening act for Blessid Union of Souls at a big outdoor concert venue later this afternoon. Busy day! Anyway, I did 1x30 at 323. No breaks. Just went at it. Felt great. Just 3 watts below the target of 326
