I've progressed alot so far this year in my attempts to get "better." I started really pushing myself late feb/early april, braving cold and what not to get to work. I felt pooped after the 6 mile ride, more pooped after the 6 miles back. Since then, I have built up to be able to go 45-60 miles in one ride. Lots of climbs, and much more comfortable going fast.
Already I feel like I'm burnt out. I admit I have not approached training in any intelligent way, essentially just getting on my bike and doing every as hard as I can all at once (climbs, sprints, etc.) I am really light, so I understand my climbing potential is really good, but I'd like to be better at everything on the bike (winds still kill me like nothing else.)
How should I go about doing this? What should my week in biking look like for sustainable progress? This is my first year of riding anything longer than 20 miles, so I understand that simply doing it will equal improvement, but I feel like the way I am doing things is not sustainable at all and I would like to ride bikes until I am on my death bed.
Any help at all will be appreciated on a level so deep it would take the length of the bible to describe it.
