I did ... It went down from previous test :( I suspect it was a poor effort on my part, but it flipping hurt the entire time.

hack 11-01-15 08:55 AM

Luckily it's only November and I'm not too worried about it. Will see if I can knock out 200 TSS in an hour today ;)

gsteinb 11-01-15 10:41 AM

2 1/2 hours at .82 to button up a 13 hour, 700 TSS week. I'm wrecked.

Between buying one of those thingies and watching Deadwood like 50x I'm set for life.

D'oh ... have been uploading rides from the 510 by syncing through Garmin Connect. As a result, haven't been plugging the Garmin in as much. Sadly, it died mid ride this AM, so no data for half the ride. Was able to record the second half via Strava app. Something around 50 miles 3,000 feet.

Regarding TSS calc's. Not sure why, but my power tests suck. I can NP around 360 for an hour on rides with short punchy climbs, but then my 20 minute tests at steady power are like 40-50 watts less. Dunno ... but I suspect that leads to artificially high TSS?

caloso 11-01-15 02:21 PM

I'm wondering if the Garmin will eat the file like it did after the spring time change.

revchuck 11-01-15 02:23 PM

I upload from my 500 to Garmin Connect too, but leave it plugged in until it's fully charged. I think the longest it's gone on one charge was seven hours. It didn't die, I just charged it again after that ride.

I rode today, no problem with mine. ;)

Really fun team ride today. More climbing than I've done in a while, suffered but felt good. Also did a hard group ride yesterday, so a very solid weekend in some perfect Fall weather :)

aaronmcd 11-01-15 09:51 PM

Still no bike, so I ran on Saturday. First time since the Spartan race over 2 years ago before I started bike racing. Started out at an 8 minute pace, felt slow... aaand finished so slow my average was 9.5 minute pace over 8.5 miles. Legs and feet are still sore. My boss is giving me his old '90s Trek on Monday, will be much nicer than running.

i know everyone is crazy for wireless and automatic uploads, but this is going to happen more often. it'll happen to me, i know.

having to plug in a device means at least a bit of juice every day.

you should have puked, and then died, then puked again, then ate everything, after that

Bike racing is a healthy sport.

globecanvas 11-02-15 07:33 AM

I did like 100 frustrated box jumps last night while watching the Mets blow it again.

shovelhd 11-02-15 07:40 AM

Jumping on a box will not make the Mets a better team.

globecanvas 11-02-15 07:44 AM

Honestly, the Mets didn't lose so much as the Royals won. They were the better team and it must have been a blast for their fans.

revchuck 11-02-15 07:49 AM

I'm just glad I got to see them win in '69. :)

TheKillerPenguin 11-02-15 08:54 AM

Day 2 of no riding: TKP is antsy. What is modern life but a gilded cage? What is the social contract but lipstick on a Walrus? TKP yearns for the Serengeti, to chase down an Antelope and cap its punk ass.

Hermes 11-02-15 09:01 AM

:eek:

grolby 11-02-15 09:34 AM

Ah, done with three days off! Just did my morning commute. Ultra-freshness + EXCITED. NP=LOL. Hopefully I can squeeze in a power test in the afternoon.

caloso 11-02-15 09:59 AM

Last night I mounted the fenders and dug out my VeloToze. Got up this morning, looked at the rain and said Eff This.

45' on the trainer.

Then I remembered how much that sucked. Shoulda just rode in the rain.

of all things I should be known for, low-low z2 rides as recovery should be it!

don't forget to add in the compulsion to not fall behind in training and the eating disorders

I am determined to not ride in the rain as much this year. It's just miserable and the workouts are never as good anyway.

Which precedes the puking.

Ygduf 11-02-15 11:04 AM

I had 2 days totally off, and only 40 minutes on the trainer Friday. I was around a baby so I'm probably sick now.

At least the kids will give me an excuse to get fat again and just give up!

it does. well, rollers with a fork stand anyway. I can't find my trainer skewer.

I am going to try 2x 20 on the TT bike. I just have to resign myself to the low power numbers. What do people do for 2x20? 95% 90?

TheKillerPenguin 11-02-15 11:16 AM

I can feel my CTL dropping. My ewang throbs with the muted fury of a slightly dwarfier star. I crave Meg Ryan movies and the superbowl. WHAT IS HAPPENING

dz_nuzz 11-02-15 11:42 AM

YOu seriously need to get back on the bike bud. Your brain seems to be melting.
