Advice on training for first century?
Hey everyone, I am going to be training to ride almost a century (146km/91mi) in this coming up August and I was wondering what are some rotines I can do in my training to help make it faster and easier. Here is some info about me to maybe help you answer.
Body: 6'1", 150lbs.
History: I got my first ever road bike last July and rode it about 600km total, I will be starting up again when it gets warm, probably in March/April.
Longest Ride: My longest ride was about 42km (26mi) at a pace of about 20km/h (12mi/h) and I didn't feel dredful after, tired but not like I was dying.
For my training I am willing to ride everyday because I love cycling. I know that I have to ride alot and get a lot distance under my belt to get better, but are there any other things I should do during my rides to help train better and get faster and increase my fitness/endurance? I live in an area with rolling hills and flat roads, so I can not do any climbing D:
If I am missing out any information that's helpful, please let me know.
Any feedback is appreciated, thank you!
