Battista admistering the 5k fitness test

Last night I did my first simulated 5km time trial on the cycling club's new computrainer. During the summer months we do periodic 5k time trials on the track to measure improvement. The club recently purchased a computrainer in order to be able to do repeatable testing during the winter months. My time was 8 minutes even, with an average power output of about 275 watts. I was happy that I was able to maintain an output very close to my average. This is good seeing as I'm training specifically for triathlons, and the bike portion is an individual Time Trial. I should be doing another test in 4 or 6 weeks, and hopefully will see some improvement.
