    My point wasn't about altitude sickness, but how much time people need to spend at altitude to get a benefit. When I was riding actively in california and doing endurance events, my coach would often...

    Everything I've heard or read said that when doing an event at high altitude, either go up the day before (to avoid altitude sickness) or go three weeks before to adjust.

    Ok, so I did the elliptical twice last week, on Tuesday and Friday:

    both preceeded by about 20-30 min. of lifting and core exercises
    Tuesday I did 15' warm up, 10x[1' on, 2' off], 10' cooldown...

    I agree with the comments about position on the bike. Back when I was racing and also doing endurance events, I don't recall having to wipe sweat out of my eyes or face that much. Perhaps somewhat on...

    Excellent. What you are suggesting sounds doable. I'll give that a shot tomorrow and see what happens.

    I have tried Tabata intervals and like them a lot. They work well for me because when one muscle group gets tired, we move to the next one, etc. That way I don't get too sore in any one area. Last...

    Thanks for the reply, sprince. When you talk about max effort for intervals, do you mean doing them for 2-3' on and then 5' off, gradually working up to doing longer sessions (15-20' or longer)...

    So I decided to do my own thing for the two "homework" days doing something like this:

    15 minutes warmup on the rower
    6x[1' on, 2' off at about 80% effort]
    10 minute cool

    When I bring down...

    lol. yes you are right.

    I would be out on my bike if there were roads in my area that were safe for riding. Unfortunately, it's not practical for HIIT training during the week. I'd be out in rush...

    This is where I am beginner to differ with them somewhat. They want me to go from 30' to 45' total minutes of speed work by increasing the "on" portion of the intervals and reducing the recovery...

    Back when I was racing actively and doing long distance events, I trained on a 3 week on, 1 week off program. The "off" week was mostly easy spinning for 1-2 hours/day, where I wasn't trying to get...

    OP, I'm a lot younger than you are but I had a similar experience this past week.

    It was very hot out so I attribute the extra fatigue to the heat and me just simply not staying hydrated.

    So I bit of an update here. I stuck with the program with the personal trainer even though the first few were F'ing hard. In mid June I bumped up to 2x/week with the personal trainer and was also in...

    The $60 price is great so I'm thinking of getting one, but the REI ad said it did require a license?

    Midland GXT1000VP4 2-Way Radios - 2 Pack - REI.com

    Or is that only for certain channels?

    Walkie-Talkie systems on the cheap

    I ride and train (horses) as a very serious hobby. In lessons in a big arena it is hard to hear sometimes, so I'd like to purchase some sort of walkie-talkie system. My trainer has one, but it's...

    Eat before you get hungry and drink before you get thirsty. Back when I was doing long rides of 100-200 miles, I would try to consume at least 200 calories per hour. That number will likely be...
