I’m spending a lot of time at home now on weekends, taking care of various new responsibilities. That means less time for riding a bike and no time for longer brevets. If I wind up with five hours a week of exercise total, including two days of weight training, that’s about average now.
Surprisingly, my power numbers are reasonably high, despite the decreased workload. Last week I averaged 455 watts for one minute, which was my highest total in more than a year. With the cold weather coming, I was going to cut down any way, so it won’t feel that different for the next few months. Hopefully, my responsibilities will lessen in the spring. If not, I’ll learn how to adjust.
