HELP! - Yet Another Winter Training Question
I've been reading through past posts on indoor trainer programs and nutrition requirements - all information has been excellent and much appreciated. I'm a newbie to the technical side of training, so please excuse the simplicity of my questions. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I want my workouts to be as beneficial as possible, and (since reading about catabolism - yikes!) am worried the weight loss and fitness gains I've had this year have been muscle fuelled.
35 yrs, 5'8'', 170 lbs, MHR ~195, RHR ~62
RECENT RIDE HISTORY
Summer ~ 60 to 100 miles per week, 3 century rides
Lose 5-10 lbs, improve cardiovascular fitness
INDOOR TRAINER TIME AVAILABLE
1 hour per day Mon to Fri, 2 hours per day weekends
Given my simple goals and the time I have available, what would be the best weekly training program?
How much should I eat after riding so as not eat my muscles alive?
What is my theoretical LT?
Right now, I am riding between 125 and 165 bpm for about an hour a day, and complete a two-hour Spinervals interval workout on Sunday.
Any suggestions? Thanks
