Well, I raced yesterday. Things didn't go as well as I'd have liked.
1st race was a 24 lap points race. I attacked right before the bell for the first sprint. Came over the top and got a good gap.
Coming into turn 4 I got passed by 5 guys. No points for me.
I couldn't get onto that group, went back to the field, got dropped.
Afterwards I told my coach "Maybe the power meter is off." Her reply, "Well, you did have a pretty good 30 seconds." It's good that she has a sense of humor.
The rest of the day was more of the same.

So, in summary...Did pushing my cleats back help? I think so. I raced well, it's just that a bunch of the guys were racing better. It definitely feels better. I'm going to leave them pushed back and see how it feels long term.
