When I was in the gym on Saturday morning, I noticed that 2 shiny new wattbikes have appeared. I intend to try and snag one each saturday am for 40-50 minutes. However, I've not trained with power before, so I don't know my functional threshold or anything like that. I'd like to achieve the following goals:
Improve my TT performance over both 10 and 25 miles
Improve my climbing
Improve my pedalling technique (I read the wattbike review on here, so I know about the pedal force graphic and trying to generate a sausage shape)
So, I'm wading through the 150-page training guide from the wattbike website, but could do with some advice on specific workouts, baseline measuring etc. I have a couple of sufferfest vids I can use, but I don't know, for example, how many watts I can generate to equal 7 out of 10 for effort. Thoughts/advice?
