    I am a new power meter user and have had one for all of 10 days:) I have been playing around with WKO trying to learn as much as possible. The amount of information is almost overwhelming but I can see that if I follow a plan it will help me improve. Since I have so little data is the PMC going to be applicable for me or will I need to wait until I have months and months of data?

    If the PMC is valid, what is the "best" way to configure it? What values should I use as starting points and when should I change them? I'd like to be able to get some use out of it since I am in the middle of the racing season. Any thoughts?

    I have "the book" and it is great. And, I have read the articles on cyclingpeaks. All good information. I guess what I am asking is how have others configured PMC at the very beginning of training with power to get halfway "accurate" results since I don't have much data yet. Will 10 days of data be valuable or do I need to wait a bit longer?

    You probably won't really learn much until you have a least a couple of month's worth of data.
