Alright so I'm a noob. Sue me.
I want to get stronger and faster-who doesn't? This morning I took a relatively short ride up a relatively big, steep hill. It totally beat the crap out of me and I went home feeling like I got a good workout.
Is this a good idea? If I take a crack at this hill say, 3 times a week will it help me significantly-or should I be doing different kinds of rides?
I am mostly concerned with getting ready for the i.e. bf ride-its no century, but I wanna get in the best shape I can. It is next Saturday (the 4th) so time is a factor.
Please try to avoid smugness as I will hunt you down and kill you if I feel offended.
I'm kidding, of course.
