I thought, briefly, about riding outside this weekend, but didn't want to spend the rest of the day cleaning a bike.
My workouts last about an 1:30 and basically consist of stuff like cadence drills that go like this:
150 - 175 watts at 95 rpms for 1 minute, then 2 min at 100, 2 min at 105, and 1 min at 110, recover for 4 min and repeat for 50 min, then do 10, 10 sec sprints in a heavy gear, 700 watts goal.
At least I'm not just aimlessly spinning, which would be intolerable, I have something to pay attention to, which makes the time go by.
Music helps too. My current playlist:
The Sword, Machinehead, Gojira and High on Fire. All new acquisitions and variations on the metal theme. If you don't know any of these bands here's a brief description:
The Sword- Sabbath-ish, but they sing almost exclusively about Vikings.
Machinehead- name says it all, fast, loud.
Gojira- means Godzilla in Japanese. French death metal (they sing in English). Lyrics are environtmentall conscious- the one I have is about global warming and whales, seriously.
High on Fire- power trio, a little like Motorhead.
