|Hey all, I had quite a rough season this year, in the sense that i burned out, blew up, hated it, walked away for a bit, returned, toughed it out, blew up.... yah, this was my season since november..
It was rough, and it was really really stupid, i was training at a frequency and intesity that i couldnt handle with jobs and school and other stuff, I acept that, and more or less wrote off this year as a building block and learning experiance.
NOW, what i would like some help with, (oh, by the way, i am triathlete, who wanders into road races from time to time) I am lame on the bike in comparison to my other two disciplens in triathlon. I need to make seriouse, solid and measurable gains in my fitness and skill on the road. Over this year i worked on spinning and I think i have my position pretty dialed,
WHAT SHOULD I DO... i am basicaly training for 40km time trials, with a swim to wake me up before it, and then run my legs off, or lungs out, which ever happends first.
WHat can i do that will make the biggest difference?

|After a base phase (you'll need to get comfortable doing at least 60 miles or so) start cruise intervals. |
If you're getting spanked in road races, it's probably the speed changes that are dropping you. That's a totally different animal.
