Day 23 Splits
It's been a really good 4 days. Four days of total times between 14:08 and 14:45. No serious medical issues. Steady output. Reasonable sleep. Actually, "reasonable" sleep is still pretty unreasonable.
The last four days have been a perfect template for the team to duplicate. An early start, on the bike quickly, great pacing on the bike, approximately 14-15 hours each day.
Daily elapsed time is leveling off. In the last 12 days only 3 days have taken longer then 15 hours.
Bike data today is about as perfect as it can get. There is something about a 77 cadence that James just locks in at. My thoughts of a higher cadence have been overshadowed by what is working. He is at 77rpm virtually every day.
Check out the max 20 minute average power of 140. Day 1 was 224 watts! Oh how fatigue makes pacers of us all.
I personally skipped my workouts today because I was "exhausted" from an Olympic triathlon on Saturday. Yea, I'm no Iron Cowboy.
