This blog hasn't been updated for a while, and with the season and my placement year being over, I have a bit of spare time to update this regularly. I think the best place to start is to go back to the beginning of 2015 when I first got my power meter and started haphazardly training with it using information I had randomly pried form the internet.
The prevailing concept was to acquire a 'base' matching that of the average power of races, with maximum power numbers referring to the famous TrainingPeaks 'power-to-weight' profile chart. This fairly basic training got me a few race wins, upwards of 300 BC points in the season and a spot on the National Elite team Wheelbase Altura MGD.
2016 brought with it a change in circumstances that, in the end, ended up being detrimental to my cycling performance. However, I still believe I improved as a rider, albeit not as much as I was capable of.
Coming into 2017, Im re-energized, and re-motivated. As of going to print, I have no team lined up for the next season, but Im fairly confident in my ability to step up and compete at national level, with a very keen eye for a professional contract. Only time will tell what happens.
Thanks for reading, Pete.
