Deanna's story: Gran Fondo Leavenworth

Deanna was a member of the 2020-2021 BaseCamp session, and she shared this story of an event during the summer after.

Yesterday I did the Gran Fondo Leavenworth, and it kicked my ass. In a good way. I didn't do the Everesting challenge last weekend (forever waiting on a new chainring which finally arrived late last week), but I did follow the Giddy Up training program.

Anyway, I had a chance to look at my power performance numbers today in TP over the last month (since my last FTP test) and Holy Smokes!

My 60 minute performance went up 15 watts

My 90 minute performance went up 28 watts

I'm so impressed with how many gains I've made through Basecamp. Thanks Tim Cusick and Kathy Watts!! And everyone else for being such motivating examples!
