I have noticed the last few days on this bike that the tires slide around like mad. Not so good for a winter/rain bike. :( Today was no different. Even just on damp roads whenever the surface was not clean asphalt or concrete I could make my rear tire spin simply by getting out of the saddle.
I forced Ryan and Justin to go through Discovery Park instead of around and as we rode up to the south gate... it was locked! Not deterred we headed east and found an opening in the fence. Whew.
Cruising along the waterfront is always nice. Where there is no one on the trail it's even nicer.
At Seattle Multisport I was cautious. Not having done any kind of substantial workout in ages I set my threshold wattage at 310 and resolved to keep my cadence up this time. It worked.
I was able to maintain 24-26 mph in what I think was my 50x15 for both intervals. My heart rate started out in the upper 150s and slowly climbed peaking around 170 at the end of both intervals. 170 is kinda high for me these days I think so I must have been working hard.
