Today I will present a tri athlete, Dave Simonson, who has finished three iron man competitions. He is currently training 5-6hrs pr week on an indoor trainer which has a calibrated power tap rear fly wheel.
Name: Dave Simonson
Power meter: Cycleops Pro
How would you describe yourself as a cyclist?
I am a three-time iron man triathlon finisher, and my strength is long, slow distance. My weakness is power over long distance. I typically do much worse during the 2nd half of the bike leg of a triathlon.
What are your previous experiences with power meter training?
I have recently purchased a power meter, so my experience is minimal. I have recently started using a Cycleops Pro 300PT.
What is your main goal with the Power Meter Project 2007?
I would like to increase my power to an average of 200 watts during a 112 mile distance. I also would like my power during the second half of a 112 triathlon bike leg to equal the first half.
