I am a recreational bicycle rider. I am fairly out of shape and overweight (~15 lbs). I have fallen in love with cycling and I'd love to start training for a century. I have read a bunch of stuff online, but it seems that most articles assume starting out fairly fit. Can someone help me find a good training schedule? Or make some recommendations about how to get bicycle fit? Even if I do not decide to do a century, I would still like to get in great cardiovascular shape so that when I do decide to do a century, I won't be starting out "from the couch."
I am new to these forums and I have looked around a bit in the hopes that I wouldn't ask something that had been covered extensively before. I apologize if I am asking something you've already dealt with.
Thank you in advance.
And, obviously, I meant "couch to century." Should've previewed.
