I'm new, so if this topic has been discussed, just gimme a link to the other post(s).
I am training for a race in July. I've done the race before, so I know what to expect as far as that goes. I am looking for advice on some ways to get in the miles without road miles. I HATE road miles. I don't mind biking around to do errands or get a cup of coffee, but I'm totally not into squeezing myself into a tacky spandex outfit to yell "CAR BACK!" with a bunch of Lance wanna-be's. Not my thing.
Any ideas? What do road miles in a training program actually DO, anyway? What's the goal, cardio? Pedal rotation stuff?
