Using Turbo Trainers
I know there have been lots of Turbo related threads lately, but bear with me! I'm considering getting one of these instruments of torture, as i'm trying to devise a winter training schedule to help me do my first season of TT's. Wondering if a turbo would be the best way for me to help build my speed and compliment longer, steadier outdoor efforts. Do people have specific workouts when on the turbo? I currently have little structure to my riding beyond trying to do 100 miles a week, generally at the same pace. Now i'm doing more miles, i find the excercise bikes at my local gym unridable- last time i used one my knee wasn't right for fortnight! If a turbo in going to help me improve, i'm tempted to cancel the gym membership and get one. Just want to know whether this is the right thing to do and how to get the best out of using one. Sorry to ramble on, i like to check things out before reaching for my wallet!
