Example text

When standing on a climb, I feel light and nimble on the pedals.  I'm confident of my endurance at the start of long rides.  For each of the following sets of numbered questions, count the circled A answers and write the total in the space provided.  In the rest of this chapter, when it comes to setting your bike up or deciding what to focus on in training, keep these limiters in mind. If you don't have a strength in at least one of these cycling proficiency areas, focus on building endurance until it's a strength before training the other limiters.

See Lactate Threshold Heart Rate Test for the details.  Do not stand during the test.  Place this scale where you can see it while riding.  Continue increasing speed and recording data in this way until you can no longer maintain speed.  Your assistant should listen closely to your breathing to detect when it becomes labored and place a VT (ventilatory threshold) on the data sheet next to the proper stage when this occurs. 2.  If VT is higher than the range of 15 to 17, use heart rate at 17 RPE as LTHR.

If unsure, go with your initial feeling.  I'm quite lean compared with others I ride with.  I'm usually capable of catching other riders who are several minutes ahead.  I'm good at sprinting.  I'm capable of enduring continuous discomfort on the bike, accompanied by heavy breathing for long periods, perhaps as long as 30 to 60 minutes.  I'm stronger at the end of long rides than most of my training partners.  I can climb long hills better than most of my training partners.  I can spin at cadences in excess of 120 revolutions per minute without bouncing.
