Yesterday, I did another 30 minutes of turning my legs. Since Friday, I'd been riding my Llewellyn, which I'm liking more and more the more I ride it. I'm really learning to appreciate the light touch and finesse it takes to corner on it.
Today, I did a fitness test at the club. You see, the last two days' easy leg-turners on the trainer weren't just about recovering from the weekend, but also about resting before the test. Briefly, I had a 10% improvement from two months ago and seem to be almost -- not quite, but almost -- back to where I was when I joined the club in December. Most telling number is that my zone 3 now starts at 195 watts. In December it was 200 watts. In July it was 180 watts. Today, I said "uncle" at 275 watts. In December it was 280 watts and in July it was 250 watts. I'm almost there. Wistfully, I think of where I might have been at the end of March before breaking my ankle. Oh well, I got there once -- it took three months that time -- I can do it again. Next test is in late December. Looking forward to further improvement then.
