I was aiming for a fitness level 3 but only got to a 2; that's the bad news. The good news is that my W/KG was 2.31, up from 2.15 last fall. My average watts were 240, up 20W from last fall.
It is EXTREMELY CLEAR what I need to do in order to improve; more cycling, less eating. That is what I am working on now and I am going to use the built-in interval workouts to aid in my training.
As some of you know, between October and mid November of 2009 I lost over 30 pounds, in part through dieting and in part through using the iBike's calorie counting mechanism during my rides to keep track of my calories burned (37,000 calories during the diet period).
Today (December 13) I completed a Fitness Test: W/KG was 3.21, FTP was 277W, average watts were 288, fitness level 4. There was no strength training involved in this result; it is just the result of taking care of my body!
It is great to have made this progress. Now, I am going to try the strength training intervals and see what they can do for my performance.
