How to train for 2-3 hour rides in 30-50 minutes?(11 posts)

How to train for 2-3 hour rides in 30-50 minutes?connolm

My weekday schedule only allows for 30-50 minute rides 2-3 times per week. What can I do during those 30-50 minutes that will improve my endurance and speed for 2-3 hour weekend rides?

Proper warmup... 3 mins on ALL OUT... 3 mins off... repeat as many times as possible... proper cool down.

I am a coach so contact me at Nick@podiumBound.Ca for more info.

Cheers,

per usual. Nick's been a rock solid team player and contributor for a long time since his rocky intro.

Catch up or grow up. You choose.

Uh oh the moral police is out with riot gear. Mind your own business. Blow me or eat me. You choose.

For pure efficiency, but high burnout factor, you can do one or two of your workouts on a trainer. No coasting, piddling down the street to get started, almost all work. Just do a short warmup and then do simulated hills/intervals. Great bang for the buck, but really tough on you mentally, especially if it's nice outside.

Why can't you add 30 more minutes?I Love Shimano

30 more minutes does not make a big difference right?

I'd like to add another 30 minutes - but that would require a more than 24 hours in the day. Demands by things such as spouse, job, house force my weekday rides to be short. A trainer seems so unappealling. I like the 3 minutes on 3 minutes off idea. Thanks
