Looking for some advice...
Hey everyone. Here is my situation: I am 19 years old, have been mountain biking seriously for probably 4 or 5 years, and this last summer I just started doing a little road biking (mainly to get me in better shape for mountain biking). I would not consider myself in very good shape! I have never really done a training program before, and I dont have a gym to go to(well, not at the moment). Starting in a few months I am going to be doing some road races (might be fun), followed by mountain bike races(REALLY looking forward to this - love mountain biking!).
Basically what I am looking for is some advice to get in shape for all of this, both training and nutrition. I suppose some vitals might help, so here is a quick rundown: 19 years old, ~135lbs(on the very skinny side), 5'9, havent done much training in the past.
If it makes any difference, I would like to train more for mountain biking, but I would assume that anything would carry over to both sports. I am sure there is a lot of information that you may need that I am forgetting, but hopefully this should do it.
Thanks in advance!
