Anybody else with this experience?
I have really loved having the option of outside work outs. However, as we all know, there are a lot of variables that impact your intervals. Many positive. For example, I really like changes in gradients, especially when you have to change gears and cadence to meet power targets. Fantastic…beats ERG any day.
However, it is very difficult to stay within a specific power target and it takes a lot longer to achieve the goals of the work out. I live in Sydney, there aren’t many long steady gradients or flat roads to hold consistent power.
Outside workouts are great. Totally rejuvenated my head. I now look forward to indoor training, especially for sweet spot and threshold intervals. Aerobic and VO2, I will do outside.
