I’m a gravity orientated MTB rider. I don’t race, though listening to the podcast is making me reconsider and I train on TrainerRoad to simply get more out of my rides. To spend less time climbing and have more power and energy reserves on the descents.
I tried a few other indoor training applications before settling into TrainerRoad in earnest at the start of the year and I’m glad I did. As I approach the end of SS-1 the climbs are easier and I’m breaking PRs both up and down the mountain.
My question is, how should I balance my indoor with outdoor work? This is the peak time of year for riding here (Melbourne, Australia) and I’m doing my three indoor sessions, plus 2 -3 outdoors (ranging from 1-2 hours long, 2 during the week and one on a Saturday / Sunday depending on who I can find to ride with). I’m only doing the training to enjoy time on the trails more, but the improvements from training is a big contributor to the amount of fun I’m having.
Any advice/experiences would be appreciated.
