PR on every Segment – Mulligans Flat ride


I had a great day for results today.  I PR’d every segment I rode and smashed some old times.  I was feeling 9/10 and even though the wattle pollen was noticeable.

Name Dist Elev Speed HR New Time Previous Best
Mulligan’s gate to gate east 3.3km 32m 22.9km/h 164bpm 00:08:30 00:09:07
Kangawallafox Climb 1.7km 29m 24.1km/h 171bpm 00:04:15 00:04:34
Quoll Gate to Curlew Gate 1.4km 9m 21.2km/h 164bpm 00:03:50 00:04:55
Mulligans Not So Flat – The Rest 1.5km 22m 16.0km/h 169bpm 00:05:50 00:05:50
mulligan’s gate to gate west 3.3km 33m 20.3km/h 159bpm 00:09:32 00:10:03
Mulligan’s Sanctuary to Gate 0.5km 9m 21.0km/h 169bpm 00:01:31 00:02:09

On segments 1, 2 and 5 I waited at the top for my colleague Amandeep, so there’s almost 20s to gain there.  On those segments I pushed quite hard, maybe 90-95% effort.  The big difference was that my legs provided power without question instead of crumbling as I reached the top.

Makes me want to set some goals:

  1. Mulligan’s gate to gate east in 8:00
  2. Kangawallafox Climb in 3:45
  3. Quoll Gate to Curlew Gate in 3:40
  4. Mulligans Not So Flat – The Rest in 5:30 (I should aim lower, but I’ll just have to see.)
  5. mulligan’s gate to gate west in 8:00 (which should be easier than going East if the current times from other riders are anything to go by.)
  6. Mulligan’s Sanctuary to Gate in 1:25.

Now that Spring is starting, I might start morning rides and chase these times down.

It also appears that my average heart rate, while still high, is moderating and my recovery time is improving gradually.

9/10
