Ive not used them Nursey, I would think they would all have their uses as part of a plan, given that you will be doing 3 to 4 bike sessions a week poss 1 or 2 of them may be on a turbo and therefore short sessions of about an hour then I would think variety is the key, hence my question earlier to Sgt Lard as to why you would want to do a 2 hr turbo, long rides should with the best of intentions be done outside

so is this the 2012 ironman training thread?

I thought I'd wonder in and read back a bit but,,,, 320pages and its only October!!!!
Is the new pirate intake way too enthusiastic or just very wordy?

Gas - managed to sneak over the border undetected.  But it was dark and foggy

OC, we're just frightfully enthusiastic

Just bought a turbo trainer.  Going to hurt, innit?

Thanks Meldy.  I think an hour on t'turbo is more than enough!  However, between my work and hubby's, the machine is sometimes the only way I can get my biking done.

SD - you do know its all backwards - the swim comes last, so don't get confused!!(they don't want their gym equipment gettng wet!!)

Gas - I see BikeScience have the new Boardman Air and SLR 9.2 with Shimano Di2 in stock - and i'm going there next month - could get expensive

Raf, yes mate. Rather than their gym stuff getting wet, we can all go diving into the pool nice and sweaty

6 mile on & off road run done this morning.


Turbos, i'll be sticking pins in my eyes before i get on one of them again. Sure you'll love it Tim

Nursey .. for long bike rides use a turbo as a last resort and not a first resort 


Nice couple of hours out on the road bike this morning, race bike now cleaned and put away, roads were like a cross country track after last nights rain .. one 'P' to content with a lot of swearing getting the feckin tyre back on

Perfect day for cycling here - clear, blue skies, sunshine, dry roads.  
Unfortunately, wee man has been to see the doctor this morning and is now on antibiotics and steroids for a grotty chest, so we are cuddled up on the sofa watching tv.

I bet it's for our free bar though. Gas is that kind of guy.
