Day 46 Splits
46-day Average: 14:27:26
An "average" day for James. Bike times have been creeping up since Day 39, leading to a small but notable increase in overall times for the last week. Normalized power for last 7 days has been 121, 137, 118, 106, 126, 126, and 125 watts. No real overall decrease in power, so the terrain and wind are dictating James' times.
I'm going to encourage James to NOT try and bust out a killer time on the last few days. Nothing left to prove. However, wouldn't it be fun to see what he can do now if he went for an all-out time? His FTP is probably shot, but give me 3 months and I'll have him with a power to weight ratio of 4.25.
