People are prepared to tolerate a lot of pain if it lasts only a short while, especially when they're rewarded with a soothing endorphin rush afterward. What I really dread is long, grueling exercises, where I'm fighting boredom as well as physical exhaustion.

My best recommendation is Joe Friel's book(s) and develop a training plan based on what you want to accomplish. I've used his book as a basis of my training plans for years now.

Intervals = long (depending on how you define the word) efforts typically over LT

Sprints = short, max effort periods typically done to win a race. See this AM's Schelderprijs. May come at the end of an interval-type effort depending on the sprint.


Note: she sprints like a girl. Watch Cavendish or look up Abdujaparov for more examples.

When was this?

We got a couple of medals some time back in track and field events.

Last Olympics nothing but we netted >1 gold in the Paralympics.

Here's Tyler Farar"s sprint training,It doesn't look hard,He's sprinting pass a moto doing 76Kph . also take note when he's finished with the sprint he's resting,not pedeling,just recovering,he may recover from 5-6min after the sprint, or whatever it takes to have his HR come down to well below his Theshhold.

A good observation from many trainers: Most people do their slow runs too fast, and their fast runs too slow.

Gummee! is also absolutely right, now we are talking about training to be able to ride better, and not just riding around.
Hello, all:

unfortunately for me, I only have time for just riding around.

looks best at 720p HD.

Allow me to retort.

>Sprints & intervals are roughly the same thing

7 weeks left until the USA Cycling Pro Road & Time Trial National Championships comes to town. Any inmates interested in spectating along the route can PM me.

Headed back to the OC for the weekend. I'll park the bike and pile a bike into the Murano and head back here. There may just be a beer in my wine cellar.

Hope so, there is some garage time that needs spent, and since my garage is heated, (south side of the building, faces east. ), I'll be needing some cooling.
Need to check/replace the clutch slave, change oil, re-torque the heads and change tires. We'll see how much of that I can get to in part of a day.

The good news is I'll have the Roubaix with me when I get back here, and I'll only be here to the Friday before Memorial Day. Then I hope it's home for good.

Pissed Trail vandalism

Somebody went to a favorite local trail last night and destroyed every single wooden bridge out there, leaving the trail completely unrideable.
