Did a PR 4 hour ride on the trainer yesterday. Thinking all the mental pain suffered will help when the snow finally melts. Just wondering how long other people ride on the trainer or rollers?

2hrs on the rollers. That is about all i can handle.
I've never seen the need to be on a trainer more than two hours.MR_GRUMPY

I usually work out with three other guys in an unheated garage. This morning, we did a two hour workout, with a warm up, a tempo section, 15 miles of high cadence intervals, and a cool down. In the two hour workout, I spent about 1:10 in zone 3.
This year is a little backwards. I'm getting my intensity work first, and my endurance later. Next week starts the crit season, I've got until the end of April before I need to build up my endurance. Maybe the snow will be gone by then.

I've done a 6 hour Spin ride before, but that was listening to tunes and being entertained so it wasn't all that bad. Usually an hour is about all I can hack before I start going nuts.
