My hero. Hat off mate.
Well done mate
Class! Still coming un for a pint, tomorrow?
That feels great to have completed! Believe me, this time last night, I was so fatigued I didn't believe I had a chance.
OMG have you seen that heart rate! So low (for me) - endurance is usually 130 and standard commute 150.
Well done. Forgot to check you made it back last night. Again, well done.
Was it just fatigue bringing it down? In Girona I saw a general 5-7% drop in HR at one point without any noticeable loss in power.
Does fatigue affect HR in that direction? (Thought it would go up?) At end, felt strong enough to hit 20 on the quiet stretches.
Could do.. from interweb search - If you are a little tired from the previous day, your heart rate may be elevated, by contrast if you have completed several days or weeks hard training and you feel very ‘run down’, your heart rate will be lower than normal. I mentioned it to the coach in Girona and he didn't seem concerned - instead he was pleased that I recognised a difference in the figures. I didn't feel tired like you didn't but a definite dip in HR was visible
Maybe then. Other tricky bit is that I'm not used to off-road riding which is naturally less consistent, so not got the hours of background to compare to.
Thats some ride my friend blimey
Cheers; was part 3 for the weekend. Glad it wasn't yesterday else I'd have been crispy.
