    I have logged my hr, speed, distance, effort, time, route, and dogs encountered for about 3 years. It's getting old logging in...60 miles, avg. speed 17.7, avg. hr. 153, felt good, Blah, Blah, Blah. I would like to get into power training to maximize my limited time on the bike and be able to set goals and training plans for upcoming events that I will be doing. Is there a book or other resource to help me get started.

    A coach might be worthwhile considering as well.

    "Training and racing with a powermeter" by Hunter Allen and Andrew Coggan Ph.D

    Don't let the title fool you, it has as much benefit (if not more) to people without powermeters with similar objectives as yourself.

    You dont need a powermeter to have specific goals.
