I'm wanting to race some Enduro's (starting with the Llandegla mini enduro in a few weeks).
New baby at home and demanding Job, so struggling to get out more than twice a week to ride properly (sometimes once in this weather), so have borrowed a cheap road bike and turbo trainer off a friend for extra training...
Should I buy some sort of cheap heart/cadence monitor to make sure this training is effective (does such a thing exist). I was planning on doing it every other day (either real ride, or TT).
I've been doing 2min 30 steady (still a bit of a sweat on) pedalling, followed by 30 second all out in full resistance/high gear using an interval timer app so far. doing 30 mins , which seems ok, certainly gets the blood pumping!
I'm starting to think I should lose my affliction to road biking, as it means I'd get more miles/training for the fun stuff in, but I'm still a decent/downhill lover at heart! One thing is for sure, I enjoy my 'proper riding' more when I'm fit, so I need to find a way of sorting it!
