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

new 60 minute PB

Post by johnlvs2run » April 2nd, 2020, 7:33 pm

I did a first time 60 minute PB this morning with the goal of > 27900 meters.
My plan was 2:09.5 pace through 48 minutes, but was 3 tenths faster and then slowed by a tenth.

I tried to go faster with 10 minutes to go, but was just hanging on still 3 tenths over.
Finally, the pace picked up in the last 5 minutes, and I kept pushing it down to 1:56 by the finish.

Splits: 2:09.3 2:09.0 2:09.1 2:09.4 2:08.1 63rpm 131df = 27903 meters / 2:09.0 pace (4k +4.3)
I was empty afterwards and not able to finish my skiing. I showered, ate and laid down for 2 hours to recover.

I set a new PB this morning of 1:29:24.1 for 40,000 meters.
splits: 2:13.3 2:14.9 2:14.8 2:14.7 2:12.5 / average 2:14.1 136df 60rpm
I will need to have better preparation to go faster, i.e. longer reps and cooler weather.
