I've also been concentrating on good form on the bike. I did very few hills, efforts or long distance (over 80kms) during this time.
There is a price to pay for that but it was worth it.
Just now have I been able to focus on pulling up pedals while standing; man does that work a treat?
Instant easiness/power/increase in speed when I do it properly.
All in all it was the best thing I could've done for myself.
The changes it's made are basically: -
2 mins quicker up a 10% 4km climb;
using a compact, not the triple I had 16 mths ago;
using a 25 cassette in lieu of the 28; sitting better on the bike as well.
Glad that worked for you dude.
