what do you mean about turbo points iron pingu,,........i thought all turbo points were 1 for 15 mins.unless you had a really posh setup that could accurately measure miles.........

If you look at DKs first post it says 3 pts per mile, nothing about the 1 pt per 15 from last year and I noticed some people were logging turbo miles, per miles.  I've not got a posh turbo, but I know I'd average at least 15mph if out on bike so basing it on that. 

Had an excellent turbo earlier, got out the techo music and blasted away for 2.5 hours, almost enjoyed it!

Turbo is 1 point for 15 minutes or 3 miles, same as last year

I average 18 mph + on the road for a long ride, same for an hour on the turbo so I measure miles. I work my arse off on the turbo so I'm not slacking. I therefore earn 6 points per hour, now if I was to just get 4 points for that much work I wouldn't find it motivating enough, not when I could just sit there spinning for 4 points an hour. I suppose if we wanted to get picky we could compare calories burned per hour, not to each other but road v turbo at the end of the day give yourself as many points as you think you deserve - it ain't a competition, no prizes, no glory, just a bit of fun, which this forum needs at the minute. I just try and train appropriately and compare to last years totals - which I am sadly behind. But not for long

Reduced run - 30mins today in exciting snowy conditions. Not quite what Fink had in mind but discretion got the better part of valour!

originally there was no points for treadmills or turbo as they were for sissies who didn't  get out there outdoors......

  It is a competition as i need to get on top of rafiki............

if you don't feel motivated enough by 4  points an hour on the turbo then get out on the roads.........

 I  ran harder per mile than normal.........

I now need to know what rafiki is taking for turbo points........

need to be on top of him

You won't get me on the roads this time of year, I know a lot of people disagree but I don't see the point for my racing. I don't race until May and its not like I need cold weather training. I don't need bike handling improvements. A lot of my training is done after 10 pm and going out at that time ain't going to happen. The way I look at it - on a turbo I can do 25mph sprints without looking at for cars or being concerned if my front wheel is going to hit black ice on them shady corners. O.K I'm just a girl I tell you what seren, if you beat me at this years outlaw I will train using your methods, but if I beat you, ....well I'll have to think of a suitable ordeal. I bet we spend roughly the same amount of time training, :b

unfair Doner.you have a much better and stronger engine than me,,,,,,,,,,,.just say you don't need rewarding for being a wuss..

You guys already have the advantage being better and stronger,..........I  have to do many more hours a week to get the same number of points

Seren - I use the Armstrong method..... I just cheat and make it all up!!

Actaully I've calibrated my turbo using cadence and heart rate against speed, although I err on the side of caution.  But i rarely use my turbo, so I'll still beat you fair and square

oh the armstrong method.must go and add a 100 points to my score.....

 i vote we all go back to 4 for the hour,,,I calibrate my turbo by how many times i say.fuck this i will only do another 5 mins then get off

Behave, I was a fat git who hadn't ran , biked or swam for 20 years 2 years ago, its my methods that got me this far. I did have the same conversation with Monique a few weeks back too, she said she tried training through cold weather on the bike and it wasn't worth it. To each their own I guess. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow when I'm sat on the turdo

I'll use the Armstrong method;

Swim/Bike/Run points: 1546

And I'll sue anyone who says otherwise.

 

(actually I've got 112.73 points for runnig this year, butI'm not playing )
