I did a Bike threshold test today. My FTP is up +16 and heart rate dropped -6. I am happy with my progress over the winter. I just need to keep it up, six months until Louisville. Not that I'm counting haha.

Congrats on the FTP test. Mine was down 17 from last fall when I last tested in January. Will probably spend all year trying to gain back the fitness I lost.

Interesting race today. On the plus side, it was the first time in my life that I have led my AG on the bike, or (I think) been in the top 6 overall on the bike leg (and this is a pretty big race with a couple hundred women). On the minus, I had a horrid run and lost the AG lead with about 1.2 km to go. . (Ninth overall, second in AG by about 45 seconds.) Arrrgh! Maybe I over-biked it. Got off and simply couldn't go. I kept telling myself to just keep moving and my run legs would come back to me, only they never did, at least before the finish line. Ugh!

Race report later this week. Started on it but laundry is more urgent right now...Everything has been sitting on a plane in a closed bag, plus transition was a mud bath--don't even want to open up the bag!

Happy belated birthday Jim.Karen, I wouldn't kick yourself about that too much. You were still 2nd The only way i'd get 2nd in my age group would be to enter a race with one other *athlete.

Still a very impressive race and finish!  Enclosed wet, muddy, sweaty race gear = mega stink, good luck!

Happy Monday everyone! Congrats on the racers / FTP increase. Do any of you pay for Strava premium and if so, why? I get more data than I know what to do with through Garmin for free so I can't understand why I'd pay for a service just to tell me what I already know.

Have you looked at the Chrome browser extension StravistiX?

Didn't know about this, thank you. Just came across this funny Strava article for anyone interested.
