|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.

|Don't contact Nick@Podiumbound.CA because he will only talk about himself. LOL|

|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|| |
