4 months into cycling now and I was able to have a very good T-day weekend. Got in 100 miles of pure bliss with unseasonable perfect weather. I keep some data on all my rides but the visual data is starting to show up which means so much more than pure numbers. At first my legs would give out long before any real cardio taxing. Now, that is changing in that I can tax my cardio, take a break and then tax it somemore. My road rides with climbing can now last 25+ miles. Loving cycling so much I can barely sleep at night due to thinking of it, unless I do a long ride that day....
What are the benefits of sprint intervals?
Do you do 'recovery rides' in zone 1 or 2?
What heart rate monitor do you prefer?
