So I did my PWR test this am and the results are in on the blog - as you can see weight does play a pretty big role in how fast you are...for instance over 20 minutes my PWR is 2.69 which puts me in the "new rider" catagory as far as PWR goes. If I was at my ideal weight of 17% body fat which is 188 pounds and I don't improve at all on power output, my PWR would be 3.04. That would put me in the intermidiate range. I did these numbers without any speed work or interval training as of yet. This is the improvements you can make just from weight loss alone. In the next month, I am starting to add some of those things alone with weight training and plyometrics to the program. I am hoping to be in the "Jersey Rider" range by race season in Sept. I am keeping close track and logging all training and nutrition so that if you are bored and you wonder how I got better, you will have an open book to look at.
