BikeErg PB Thread.

Post by CaseyClarke » March 12th, 2020, 8:09 am

I noticed that SkiErg has a PB thread but BikeErg doesn’t, so I thought I’d create one. Hopefully it’ll encourage posting of some sessions here.

I smashed my previous 4k PB of 8:38.0 this morning.
My training has been good, so my goal was to get close to and hopefully under 8:30.
However, starting out at 2:06 pace felt okay, so I kept the pace going and picked it up to the finish.
Splits: 2:06.2 2:06.7 2:06.0 2:04.8 1:59.8 = 8:19.0 PB / 2:04.7 pace
