    Not good enough. They are going to conclude what they want to conclude no matter what you say.

    1:15 23 mi freezing my ass off. Fitness this winter is hard earned.
    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.

    Still doing (lots of) base. Z2 and Z3. At least he's got me varying the cadence in the intervals... sitting there doing big gear for 45min at a time makes the ass hurt. Was supposed to do some big gear stomps last night which don't work so well on rollers. By 10 seconds I'm at 155rpm doing 50mph.

    Does anyone cut their CD short when doing low intensity stuff like this? My plan says 15min, but I usually go for 5 or so. Just enough so my HR falls to ~110 or below.

    When it comes to rollers, which size drums enable you to do harder efforts without spinning out? I would guess big drums...

    Haha, yea I just jump off the bike and straight into the shower, even when doing sub-LT intervals.

    @CDR, see my strava ride for details

    ---
    @above

    Smaller drums and a resistance unit.

    Though it kinda sucks doing hard efforts as i never got comfortable and even got a bit numb after 20min...

    If I'm outside, my cooldown is however long it takes me to get home. If I'm inside, it's often just long enough to catch my breath and then into the shower.

    Washington has plenty. I see it this way, if a bike frame breaks because I rode it (on a trainer or no), then it was defective. The manufacturer lying to me and telling me it wasn't defective doesn't put the bike back together.

    With my output (or lack thereof), it's not likely to be an issue.

    So that's good.

    I tend to treat people similarly to how they treat me. I've been screwed over countless times, but rarely twice by the same person.

    1:30 on the trainer, legs were just shot from yesterday so I barely managed 125 watts avg. I broke 200w for 5 seconds but not 10 seconds. Ha.
