Winter training to those who don't do weight, but please put in your opinion also if you do weight training during the winter. I have always done some weight training on and off over the years, but to be honest I don't think I ever got that great benefits to 'on bike strength', as I would have got to time on the bike.
As my winter training now consists of 3-3 1/2 hours run on sat, which I will increase over the new year to about 4-5 hrs then upping the intensity towards the season. My 2/3 days mid week include high cadence work (fairly light gearing) with some climbing on one of the days, trying to stay seated throughout, bit bigger gearing than normal, but keeping the heart-rate low. Trying to keep the intensity a good bit lower, with no high end work, but more of an emphasis of building strength and endurance just now to take across to next season.
What are others doing this time of year and over the following months?
