    Good info…thanks, I will do that this weekend. Also, I surfed around and found that watts per kilogram is the best way to compare. Like you said. I found that on my last test power at theshold is 2.7 watts/kg.

    If anyone is interested…..according to wikipedia, “the average “fit” cyclist produces 3watts/kg.

    So for me, 3 weeks into my base program I am considered “almost fit”

    This being my first season with a powertap..what kind of improvement should I expect through the base?

    Thanks.

    thanks for the reply….looking at the graph on my training peaks, I see that it was not really that hard of a workout. It was actually this past tuesday and I did a test. So, I warmed up for 20 minutes on the trainer and than went out and did a 20 minute time trail. Average Watts for that twenty minutes was 210. I am not sure how that compares to other sport racers. If it is really low, I guess I need to calibrate it. Not sure how to though.
