P2PI week 9 power testing

During the winter it was pretty easy to follow the Pump Up the Base and Prepare to Pin It training programs to the letter, and I saw some big power gains.

Now that I’m coaching most days and traveling many weeks — not to mention other work and Life — it’s getting harder to follow P2PI precisely. But I’m following its spirit: fitting in the key workouts, sticking to my weight work and resting when I can.

And the power numbers are still improving:

The short-term power is fun, but I’m still seeing improvements in aerobic power/efficiency, which has long been my weakness. Check out these submax time trials:

Week 5 – 302 watts at 152 bpm average
Week 9 – 305 watts at 146 bpm average

Slightly more power at a lower heart rate = sweet.

I wonder when I will max out? The next test will be interesting.
