Hi all - I am struggeling a bit with the pace of my outside rides and hope you can help me out. I read a lot of articles already but got lost on all the theoretical stuff - aerobic threshold / benefits of hr zones etc.
Iam following mv ss base now with the goal of doing a 175km gran fondo (incl 5k climbing) in September (which I also did in July 19). Overall goal is to be faster on flat roads (50 -150 km).
Once a week I replace a tr indoor ride with an outdoor ride (do not have a power meter). Outside I am more or less pushing as hard as I can (flat rides) but Iam wondering whether I should pace differently taken into account my goals? How are you determining pace without powermeter?
