I love MTB, last year I tried for the first time to do a MTB marathon 90kms (55 mille) it took me 8 hours but I loved it and made a few more since. By September I decided to buke commute.
The reasons to start were:
- improving my fitness levels.
- less CO2 thrown to the sky.
- save on gas and car milleage.
But now a question came to my mind. My commute is 30 minutes each way will this improve my fitness levels for marathons? It's a rolling commute on which I average 20km/h on an old MTB.
On Tuesdays, at the end of the day I get my cycling gear and I ride for an extra hour and a half. And on Saturdays afternoon I ride dor at least 3h off-road.
Is there anything I could do to make it a more efficient training?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
