At love has come around

Ha! I meant my POWER has come around :)

For the first Wednesday night ride in Lord knows how long I actually had POWER. I started strong, maintained power throughout the ride and finished with a negative power split. I think the muscle hardest worked was my core. Marine Drive was throwing out some nasty sideways wind and my core battled in aero position, fighting to keep balance. One point a semi drove by too close + the wind threw me completely out of my comfort zone and a had about 20 seconds of pure shaking - in aero, very much surprised I didn't land up in the ditch in the side of the road. Holding good power today is another indicator my training is on track :) Now for the fun data
