With the warmer weather I am riding my outside routes. The Strava App keeps track of my rides over created segments of the path. I could see this week how these times compared to the recent years. I do not do hard training compared to others, but I am happy when my times get faster.
I am pleased with the good start to the good season. I am trying to hold myself back from jumping into too many miles too quickly. My first April ride was on the 11th and I have gone out three days after that , in between I go an easy day.
My quick assessment for the improvement is from working on spin speed and having a plan to push harder gears without creating knee pain. There also has been some conscious work on breathing during exercise and some improvement from using the gears more effectively.
