The idea of watching a video while pounding away on the trainer (just bought a Cycle-ops Magneto) doesn't appeal to me all that much. Last night I threw on the headphones and jammed out to some Veruca Salt. It seemed to work, but in reality, I have no idea if what I'm doing is helpful at all.
My goal over the past few nights has been to ride fairly strong (mainly in gear 3-4 on the flight deck) for half an hour. Because of the shape I'm currently in, that seems to be about my ceiling right now.
What I'm interested in is ideas you folks have for planning an exercise session that will be benificial to my goals (building stamina for long rides, and getting into better general shape). I'm guessing with the proper pacing I could do an hour, but full out I'm only good for about half that.
