Technical effort for Bike Improvement

Day 84 (Friday) Bike 62 minutes - 28km

Today was the start of my concentrated effort to improve my bike and bike technique. The key to my Kona qualification is coming through with an astronomical improvement on the bike. I will need to pedal strong, more efficient and maintain a much higher wattage than ever before.

Tonight my bike was focused on working the entire pedal stroke, spinning at 90-95 rpms and keeping heart rate smooth. I was shocked to see how tired the legs were doing that - I obviously have relied too much on the running centric muscles in the past when biking. Worked at only 130 watts in order to focus on the technique.

Time to get quite serious on the bike. Tomorrow - IMSG course.
