Yesterday I bested my all time 30min power while pacing for 45min (by 1 watt). Up 8 watts and down a bunch of RPE from when I last did this during finals in December. No substitute for volume I guess.

One of my fav workouts is 1x20 -> 50-60min tempo -> 1x20. The last 20min feels like death. It is glorious.
