Test Week: Bike Assessment

It is Test Week and today was the Bike Assessment! The Bike Assessment is to monitor your training improvements (and hopefully not your setbacks). I was pretty excited about the Bike Assessment because I feel like this is an area that I have worked pretty diligently in and feel much stronger at than I did previously. (I guess I kind of feel that way about all three areas, but I like the bike the most, ha!!).

And today it did pay off and was proof that all this hard work is actually paying off! Hurray!!!

The Bike Assessment consists of a 15-mile ride and “Conducting time trial (TT): Goal is to hold a steady pace you can sustain for the entire TT without ‘blowing up’ early or having enough left to kick at the end.”

So it’s a balancing act of working really hard but not so hard that you can’t complete the assessment or totally suck at the end.

These are my last Bike Assessment results:

This was a big improvement, well in my mind anyways, with a 6:49 improvement!! I felt really good on the bike and felt strong!!!! SOOOOOO close to Chattanooga! Cannot wait to see the results on race day.

I cannot say enough good things about Coach Kreitz and TriDotTriDot. If you have been thinking about hiring a coach, I 100% feel that this was the best thing I could have done for my training!!!
