I have raced some endurance events this year with good results. I don’t have a power meter (yet) and.base my training off of heart rate. I have good endurance (12+hrs) and good sprinting power (~10 seconds). I base my sprinting power on our clubs fast group ride where we sprint to stop ahead signs. I’m usually at the first or second position in those cases.
I had one of my A raced in late June which I completed my goals for and did better than I expected. I have raced a couple of endurance mountain bike events and did well at those also.
My next A race is at the end of September (mountain bike 12 hrs). I now have the drive to really crush this one. I feel like my training has been sufficient, but I’m wondering what it could be if I were to start trainer road between now and then. I have 9 weeks until race day, with a couple of races in there.
Should I start on a trainer road plan, what should it be? Or should I just keep training as I have been and “figure it out”? I typically do 2-3 endurance rides per week and 1-2 interval sessions per week. I have a hard time finding sweet spot using my heart rate.
