Hi all, starting to see the back end of December now.....Thank god! Looking from a racing point of view, when does everyone start upping the anty?? I.e start upping the pace, and start adding 2x20 intervals to there rides. Im starting mid jan, would this be considered as to early?? I start racing end of Feb/March by the way.

    I've been doing threshold work since start of November. What does waiting till now gain? If anything, IMO, you lose out by not keeping intensity. 2x20 is not really speed work anyway, is it?

  • I have been doing threshold work on the turbo since November to. But this has been riding at 84-88% of my max for 1.5- 2 hrs with the occassional short sprint to stretch the guns!. But i wouldnt call this high end training, i mean like as hard as you can, hill and interval training, do you mean you started doing this November time??? :shock:
