@Nate_Pearson posted a topic last year about the possibility of TR having text based workouts for outside:
As the evenings start to get lighter, I’m just wondering which workouts users have completed successfully outside?
The problem I have here is I can’t really ride for long without having to stop for lights or a junction. There are a couple of 15 - 20 min climbs but it means cycling for just under an hour to get to them. So sweetspot and threshold sessions will always be a stop start affair so am I getting the same benefit? Can I just increase the interval time slightly to compensate for stops and undulating terrain?
With V02 efforts I could use shorter 2-6 min climbs but I question whether I’m recruiting the same muscles as if I were doing the efforts on the flat. Obviously not an issue if your event calls for that but I’ll mostly be riding crits. Does anyone successfully do V02 efforts outside on flat or rolling roads?
I assume sessions like Spanish Needles where there are lots of really short on/off efforts are out of the question or has anyone managed these and how?
