Hi all, new to the forum, loving the TrainerRoad program. I ride to work 20 miles a day 5 days a week, with about 800 ft vertical gain each day. Some of the pitches are 6-10% for up to half a mile. So its hard to ride at low intensity.
When I ride indoors, I have a power meter on my road bike, but when I commute, I use a mid range cyclocross bike that doesn’t have a power meter.
Is there anyway to be able to measure/incorporate my commuting mileage into a training program without a power meter? And also, without having to estimate TSS for each indiviudal workout(ride).
I feel like these commutes combined with a low volume plan, make a hybrid high volume plan with not terrific recovery. I’d prefer to train harder on fewer days, instead of 13 sessions of work.
