Do you use it?
I used my trainerroad setup for the first time this AM. My setup is my Rockhopper Mountain Bike on a Satori TACX turbo trainer set to resistance level 7, a Garmin GSC10, Garmin HRM, and a Moviestick USB ANT+ receiver stuck in to my Macbook Air. Everything works perfectly right away. Apart from me
I did the 20 minute test and it told me to lower my FTP to 165 Grrr. Really need to get stronger but I am focussing primarily on running right now.
What plans are you using on there? How are you finding it? I was thinking of starting with 2 sessions from the Intermediate Build Phase I mid week and then a club ride on weekends if I can manage it or the third session from the plan if I can't.
Here is my weak 20 min test: http://www.trainerroad.com/cycling/rides/86157
Nate from TrainerRoad here. This poped up on my Google Alerts. If anyone has any questions I'll be glad to answer them.
ok Nate, what is trainerroad ?
a quick google and i now have a different question
Haha hi Nate
For the others - if you have a turbo trainer (that TrainerRoad have measured) and speed/cadence sensor like the GSC 10 for example all you need to buy is a cheap USB ANT+ stick for your computer and you can run trainerroad.
I use it for the first time today as per my post. It's bloomin' fantastic Seems they are super keen to provide support too!
Nate - I do have one question. I was looking on your website and I could not see where I order stronger legs and bigger lungs. Can you send me a link please?

what is trainerroad ?
You mean its not that big, grey, straight, thing outside my front door that I ride my bike on for training???
Cat - if I get one of these things can I still sit on your wheel and draft for miles while you work really really hard??
I have a tacx flow (upgraded to iflow/imagic thingy) and a garmin 310XT (so have a ant+ thingy). So where does TrainerRoad get its data from?
Would I be working off psuedo power from the Tacx or HR or both.
