Got a decent 22 miles in just over an hour and ten minutes with about 10ish stoplights. Weather in VA beach was 44 this afternoon.
Doing a small group ride with some people in the tri club tomorrow afternoon.
I also registered for my first time trial!!! Woot! It's a 40km completely flat out and back course and if it's the course they use for the half marathon it's literally a straight out and back course there is no elevation changes or turns (one U turn to come back)! : )
My goal time is 55 minutes. I dunno how realistic that is, I will be riding a Cervelo P3C and I have an Giro Advantage 2 Aero helmet. I don't have a nice wheelset yet, although if I can somehow finagle renting some wheels for the day or something, i'm going to try.
I think I will be able to meet my goal since I am also training for a marathon so the training volume is high enough to have a pretty decent engine by the time the event comes around.
My volume currently is commuting to work 12 miles (round trip), Bike/Run workouts Bike workout is around 20 miles most days (weekend minimum of 40) running I am currently at 6 miles and will be at 12 by the end of next week.
I have a trainer and everything so I heard to warm-up quite thoroughly on it, so when I start I can lay the hammer down right away. I also would like to have my max mileage around 70-80 miles, I really would like to place in the top 3 for Cat 5 since it's a small race. I can hit 35mph very briefly right now on flat roads for about 3 minutes LOL horrible right! My Bike is geared 53 with a 12-25 cassette. I would like to get a larger chainring (55) perhaps since I have a really decent strength base to push a big gear and I have a little bit of trouble keeping the cadence really high.
