Need help developing a training routine for the winter.
Here's the deal. I'm a paramedic and want to take part in the annual bike ride in this link www.emsbikeride.org
My schedule is odd, but I figure I can get a fair amount of riding in per week. Using the schedule I'm about to provide, what's the best way to be able to handle this week? I currently have not ridden more than 100 KM on the road, and have done 75 miles on a trainer. Here's my schedule
2 Day Shifts: Can do a little in the morning before work and some after as well.
2 Night Shifts: Can do a ride during the day before the first night shift. Don't want the ride to be more than I can easily handle since I may be up all night. After last week, a metric would be the most I would consider, especially considering time anyway. Don't like to do anything in between the night shifts.
4 Days Off: First day off starts the morning I finish the second night shift. Worthless to try anything that day usually since I am usually very tired. Second day off I'm still recovering a little, but an easy ride wouldn't be out of the question. Thirda and Fourth day off I usually feel very strong and will ride both days. This week I'm hoping to do a metric on both days. We'll see if the weather allows that.
I have a trainer and videos. I also emailed my bike club to see if there was people who would help me accomplish this goal.
Thanks in advance for your time in this, it really does mean a lot to me because this is a huge goal for me.
