A lot of general training questions on the forum. That's good. Now, a specific training question: will I survive this ride?
In two weeks I will attempt the Redbud Ride, Green Monster variety. The route may be seen here:
My training history is here:
I'm not sure much detail Strava will let you see, but my most ambitious ride this year has been the St. Patricks Populaire, which had a lot less climbing. At mile 55 I had run out of gas and just limped on in to the finish (I did make it within RUSA guidelines).
My goal is to a) finish, and b) within RUSA guidelines, although this is not a RUSA event.
I can climb a bit and I can go distances but I don't have much luck combining the two.
Any recommendations on what kind of riding to do until then?
