Field Test

Consisted of $1 bills, a stage, a pole and... wait, wrong test. My CTS Field Test to see where my fitness level is and figure out my hr training ranges. This is a 3 mile all out effort, short recovery and repeat. Reger was nice enough to host the event while I abused his computrainer. This gave me watts, no wind, warm temps and all the other required stats (lab test conditions - nice)

My second effort should have been stronger but I think the first one is accurate. This will give me a base line for the start of the season. I hope to increase my watts to 300 for the 3 mile effort by mid season. These are always fun trying to break yourself.
