Maybe a bit of an exaggeration but am I the only one somewhat fearing moving the training outside? Just in regards of the good results I’ve had following a structured training plan inside, the outside feels too free in the regard that it’s tough targeting specific training, i.e. the risk of a lot of junk miles.
At this point I’m almost contemplating waiting as long as possible with the outside rides just because I think that without adhering to a training plan I will ultimately loose/not gain fitness. I just know that the group rides that I do enjoy will most likely not benefit my training nearly the same way the training plan does.
The season for outdoor riding is maybe 5-6 months here so I really should make the most of it but giving up on performance gains during this period is a hard thought.
A bit of rambling but how do others cope with the same dilemma?
