Hey guys, Im a Singlespeed 24hr Solo & Marathon MTB’er who has always trained outside and spent enough time over the years using coaches that I essentially coached myself for the past 3-4 years.
Now having had our old son nearly 2 years ago, I decided to put my faith in the team at Trainer Road and commit to an indoor training program along with a couple of longer (3-4hr) outside rides per week as its more efficient to balance Family/Training life. I’m currently in the 3rd week of Sweet Spot Base Low Volume II with plans to stack Sustained Power Build off the back of it and then some form of Specialty (yet to decide). ANy suggestions here for specialty?
My other question to all of you guys is really around whether I should spend my time on the kickr on one of my SS MTB’s or continue to use my roadie as I have been doing so far? I have 2 x SS MTB’s so can quite easily leave one on the kickr for a while for indoor sessions, the road bike will then sit and gather dust as MTB or CX would be my choice to ride outside anyway
Has anyone out there spent time on a Kickr on a Singlespeed? Thoughts? I figured it to be really important to be training in the position you will race in compared to training on the road bike which is quite a different position? Worth the change to the MTB or is the training effect much the same?
Any suggestions or help to make some decisions will be much appreciated!
