How many base miles?
Well. My off season pretty much starts on Monday, and I'm really excited for getting stuck into some winter training!
Next year is my first as a junior, so that means longer races at a faster pace.
The question is, how many miles?
Or is it just a case of "Pedalare! Pedalare!"?
Is there anything I should work into my training routine?
My sprinting's pretty poor.
There are wattbikes at my school which I can use in the week, but other than that I only have weekends and holidays (before March I have a two week half term and then a month of Christmas and another week of half term) to play with.
I was thinking try and get 2000 miles in before 1st of March.
Anyone have any better ideas?
So, I've done 400k in 16 days. Feeling pretty buzz, and I'm going out this afternoon.
I've got two weeks holiday now, time to get down to some proper training.
I spoke to a cycling friend, who said that 500m TT's are perfect for building top end speed and the ability to jump off a group without taking anyone with you. He also recommended hill reps, but I'm in Suffolk, and I can't find any.
The ToB pros took all my strava KoM's, so first things first I'm going to have to go and get those back!
Yep; Wattbiking ROCKS! I was a little surprised to find that my left leg produces 51% of my power every time, I would've thought it would be the other way around.
So yeah, if anyone has found a secret mountain range in Eastern Suffolk, let me know!
