We have threads dedicated to workouts, FTP gains and other awesomeness. How about celebrating those luscious little Trainerroad PR trophies we never tire of seeing popup after we upload our workouts?
I whacked 86 of those bad boys in 100 degree heat tonight. Damn it felt good…
Share as many details as you see fit but let’s see some hardware
Along with lifting PRs this past week…
Sorry just re-read and you want TR hardware… last hard ride before starting my off-season was a month ago:
Did a 20min test which PRed everything from ~8-20min.
Then did a zwift race which got everything else out to ~59 minutes.
Finally stronger than when my knees blew up last year.
Despite a poor start (couldn’t clip in, damaged nerve endings) I managed to PB the club TT. My mate did it at the same speed as me but 16s faster. So I’ve got a lot to gain by clipping in right
Didnt think I hit the sprint that hard this morning, but 4 seconds of PB! 16,17,18,19s
really need to remove that 1s spike from where-ever it came from…
my one Strava segment that I test myself on regularly - its usually on my way home at the end of a ride
For 2020 i’ve reduced it down from 25 second to 23 second and got it to 21 seconds today - and I know I got more
Any PR’s will do. Congrats on the KOM and the PR’s. I got a crown along with, or because of really, my PR’s today. As Lionel Sanders said, “there is something unusually satisfying about a KOM.” No idea what it is but the TR Trophies especially so and the occasional Strava PR are still motivating in the absence of racing.
KOMs are nice but a little bit of luck is involved due to time focus. I really love the all-time power PRs
Awesome power too, congrats. I felt that way today as well. Hit some PR’s, felt amazing, also thought to myself, “I can go harder.” Love it
@bbarrera Absolutely…as they say when it comes to KOM’s, the, “wind is your frind.” I will take power PR’s too, especially all time version no doubt.
@ErickVH - Killer when you get a big PR like 20 minutes. Then you decide to bang it out to an hour…beast mode! Congrats!
Definitely that and a double decker. It was a north west wind when I did this last Saturday which got me going and when I had a sidewind I was nicely sitting in the draft of a double decker. I was gutted when they pulled off into the hospital
It felt like death when doing it honestly. Riding bikes is hard.
lol yes and thats why I said “after looking at ride data”
Skipped my Tuesday workout and woke up Wednesday mad. Decided to ride my “test yourself” ride at high noon as punishment. 95 degrees F and high humidity to boot. Beat my PR by over 2 min over the ~60 min ride. IF of 0.85 and I think if the weather was cooler, I could up that…
Best part (besides the positive trendline) was smack texting the screenshot to my friend whom I passed on the leader board.
Some weird PR for me: averaging 110rpm for an hour on a speed endurance ride, pretty unusual since I’m more of a grinder.
Best 1 min Power
Funny just saw NP is lower then AVG hmm
For the NP/AP discussion, trainingpeaks explains it like this:
For very short intervals , normalized power can be lower than average power . This is because that when calculating normalized power , each data point in the selected range is calculated using the entirety of the 30 seconds prior to itself, which is the basis of NP.
Thanks a lot for the explanation mate
TR says I’ve done 2020 x10 PR for my sweetspot session today
Back in Feb I did 75w more for 10mins and on my ramp test last week I did 44w more
