Intended to drop power to 185W, but settled at 187W. Tried to hold the rate at 18 for the first 20 minutes.
20′, r18, 186.9W, AvgHR: 142.9, Lactate: 1.6
No problems with those numbers. Pushed on at 187W and was fine through the next 2 20′ pieces. In the last piece, I kind of did a slow motion crash into the wall. My HR started to run away from me and I felt a much higher level of fatigue. So, after about 10 minutes of trying to hold 187, I slowed down to about 180W and essentially paddled it out. HR stayed stubbornly high though.
Tomorrow: Same thing, but at 185W
