One of the things I like to do to change up a workout a bit is to get out of the saddle and work on building that endurance. I know there are parts of workouts specifically for this, and Chad’s workout text is great at helping mix it up too, but I’ll use an entire interval for this instead of just a small bit. I really feel this has helped me out on the road, especially on long climbs (>30mins).
Does anyone else do this?
In my workouts so far this offseason, I’ve used the 3rd 10min interval in Carillon as an #OOTS challenge, and recently as well the 3rd 8min interval in Ebbetts. I typically ride at 60rpm during these efforts and of course, as Chad points out at times, these are always done with focus and without knee pain.
What’s your #OOTS challenge?
