So this week I did four 15 minute intervals with 4 minutes of rest in between. Today I went all the way up to the top of the South Approach Road (basically the top of the mountain). It was about 11 miles of road and about 3700 feet of climbing from where I started (Rincon Ranch Road). If you work that out you get an average grade of 6.4%. My average speed on the way up was about 9 mph, note that this includes the four minute recoveries where my speed was more like 2.5.
I also set some new personal average wattage records:
|5 min||363 Watts|
|10 min||337 Watts|
|30 min||297 Watts|
|60 min||267 Watts|
Here's a view from Google Earth of the route I took:
