Just wondering what you do to keep an ideal fitness level for your biking?

Sounds a bit serious but not really just want to be in good enough shape to enjoy riding without running out of steam also got me name down for MM ?

At the moment I turbo train and one decent ride at least once a week :? But to no real program and quite random :?

Any ideas for some sort of format to stick too??

At the moment, with little un keeping me up a lot during the night, I am quite tired so my riding time is a little short sadly :roll:

So, I am on the TT Mon/Wed/Fri for 30 mins at a time (45 or 60 mins if I can muster the energy), and one big ride out on either Sat or Sun.

I feel like I am letting myself down, but I know its only short term and 'normal service' will be resumed in due course! :lol:

the mrs got a trainer this weekend and ive set her a task of 20mins a day . i dont care if its only just turning the cranks round for 20mins as long as she doesnt stop after a week :lol:

just think of it as any time on the bike is better than no time at all

Over the winter I run 2-3 times a week, swim a couple of times and cycle to work. On my day off I try to go out on the bike for a reasonable length ride increasing the distance week on week.

As it gets lighter I swap some of my early morning running for short cycling sessions and continue to increase the mileage and gradient on longer rides.

Sounds organised but it's a bit at the mercy of weather, work and all kinds of other things!
