Great ride outside this afternoon. I didn't take the same route as I did yesterday, so I did not have the rollers to tackle today. As a result, my average watts were down a little, but my speed was up. I did not push my ride so much because I knew I had to maintain for 30 miles instead of just 20. I held off the throttle a little, but not too much. From mile 23 on, I tried to keep my speed at 24 mph. It was a fun ride.

These rides are fantastic tests of my fitness. Today I really pushed some good numbers. I hit 243 watts for 5 minutes today. Tomorrow's weather should be really nice, so I am going to see how long I can hold 300 watts. I am going to see if I have the time to do 40 tomorrow. Here is how it all played out:

And the Good News is...
My TSS for the week so far is 417...I just bumped my goal for the week to 1,100.
