Rather than the usual Strava video or whatever I thought I’d take a slightly tongue in cheek look back at my season.
54,887 – Number of cakes consumed, wait, no, that’s metres climbed
9,197 – Distance covered. In km, because its pro. Maybe also because the number looks better…
299 – Hours spent on the bike.
261 – Number of individual rides. Excluding commutes, as they’re not on Strava they don’t exist right?
197 – Max heart rate. No two ways about it, you can’t get a decent result without suffering.
191 – What I thought my max heart rate was. See above.
184 – Longest single ride in kms (Ronde Picarde).
150 – Number of minutes spent hanging on for dear life and wishing that the Divs (Regional RR Champs) would end.
145 – Number of minutes spent secretly enjoying racing the Divs as a first year 4th cat. I didn’t last, but then I wasn’t expecting to get beyond the first lap anyway. Nat B as a first road race anyone?
24.45 – Best 10 mile TT. Note, taking the right turns can be conducive to good times.
16 – Number of races finished.
10 – Total points scored.
3.82 – Watts per kg at threshold. Power not bad. Little more weight loss required though. More to be done on 1, 3 and 5 minute power too.
3 – Best result of the season. Woop!
2 – Trips to A&E. I’m calling this the ‘Thrasher ratio’. Hoping to not improve on this particular stat in 2016.
0.25 – Watts per kg lost due to ‘slight’ overindulgence at Christmas.
