Nice job crushing Old Montgomery...and several other climbs!
wow you crushed old montgomery!
Your elevation graph always looks like the stock market.
Thanks y'all. This ride sets a new record for me for climbing on an in-town ride. Here's some fun Garmin screenshots from the ride ... I've tried to use descriptive filenames for each:
Brian, i've always wondered, but do you target a wattage for rides or is it mainly just by feel?
I only think about overall average wattage on my easy/recovery days to make sure that my legs get enough rest. On the hard days, I target specific wattages on climbs/intervals but without a wattage goal for the entire ride. On today's ride, here's what i intended to do: caldwell mill - vestavia dr (285 watts), old montgomery (400 watts), smyer circle via brookwood (275 watts), european bypass - vestavia dr (300 watts), mill springs (400+ watts), karl daly from grants mill (250 watts), karl daly complete (275 watts), dell-overcrest (250 watts). If I'm struggling on a climb then my "target wattage" will become an average to shoot for by the end. If I'm feeling good on a climb, then the target wattage will become more of a lower bound but still trying not to exceed it by too much.
gotcha...i knew there was a method tot he madness!
