Slowing My Roll - Sari Hargand image
Slowing My Roll - Sari Hargand

This past weekend I had a chance to reconnect with the reasons I ride in a profound way. I am an analyst by nature and by profession. As such, I am extremely motivated by metrics and having a training plan that allowed me to track ride time, power and effort was amazing. Since January, and my training with VeloPro, I have spent more than 100 hours on my bike, logged over 1,600 miles and gained 87,000 feet of elevation. My functional threshold power or FTP has increased from 150 W/kg to 212 W/kg. I trained, I raced, and I trained again. I have gotten fitter, faster, and feel ready for my first century ride in the coming week. This weekend however, I slowed it all down and went out to enjoy the scenery and company in eastern Oregon. I still logged those miles, but I wasn’t racing to improve my time or power output, I was just out there to connect with my bike.
