Indoor Trainer: Love em' or Hate em' ?

Started by JesseD. Last reply by Jon Ervin Aug 9, 2014. 8 Replies

Ok so this week i began seriously riding the trainer again and it started out rough but by tuesday i was having a better time and riding longer. So i thought i'd hold a non scientific poll and see how others feel about riding the turbo trainer.

Like most others, I have gone through some pretty epic changes in my life in the last 2 years and now I am finding myself wondering if I really NEED 3 bikes (1 road, 1 "Cross and 1 MTB)?  What do you think, should I sell my road bike and use my…Continue

Seattle's MFG Cyclocross will now have Clydesdale Class.  Read more about it here.

Jesse, I find Strava is mostly a motivational tool...  I like your running goal.  What really helped me is to do interval research on running websites.  I was able to pick up about 1m/mile over the winter doing this.  I stick to the local HS track so I can do more structured workouts.  I will mix it up between "running effeciency" @ the track and a few road runs.  For Example:


Warmup: Skipping, Bear Crawl, Stork Walk, Lunge walk, Inchworm, walk backwards, latteral shuffle (look these up on youtube if you don't know them)


Workout: 3 - 100 yard striding (focus on form), 3 - 300 (3/4 lap) yard at slightly above comfortable, 3 - 800 (2 laps) yard at slightly above cofortable ...  You should be gassed when you get done.  You're trying to train your body to opperate and recover at a higher level. 


***  Walk backwards for about 100 yards minute between each set.  You should be slighty gassed when starting your next set.  


Cool down & stretch

Strava..absolutely. I have a Garmin 800 so I can upload directly. I also track my workouts on TrainingPeaks.

"Off Season", what is that? Here in New Hampshire the winters are long so during the week it is on the trainer and treadmill. Weekends out on the road unless ice or snow covered. As far as trying work towards running a 5K, checkout the book 'Run less, run faster". Same concept as "Time Crunched Cyclist".
