I went out to the crit course with the idea of doing an hour or so of SST but once there the legs felt great so I just went by feel and cruised. I was pretty surprised after 20' to see an ave of 270w so I tried to turn it back a bit but then I decided to do 4 x 30s sprints coming up the finishing straight (had a massive tailwind). These efforts felt great, easy in fact and put me back to 270w ave for the 40'. 97% is not SST! Oh well, it was an easy threshold workout then. Man my legs really felt good tonight (at -36 TSB).

There were 4-5 other riders out doing laps tonight and everyone eventually ended up on my wheel. That's always good for a 10-20w bump in ave power.
