I followed rough fink plan this year, the rough bit being I added alot of extra long bikes I did over 6 100m rides at heart rate. This worked and I ran a marathon this time!

I have one too, I was looking for something that had variable resistance and let me put routes in. I spend quite a bit of time on the turbo even in the summer whilst home with the kids. I found IM Wales routes no problem and was cycling this for a lot of the summer.

I'm now starting to have a look at some of the interval training sessions which you can do hill interval sessions to videos of routes or by google maps

As Andy has said it's your weight that keeps the wheel pushed against the roller so it does still slip on tough hills if you get out the seat. Gives a power output, plays cycling videos at the pace your riding. I'm really pleased with mine. 

I haven't tried any of the online races but may do over the winter just to keep motivated. I also haven't tried the FTP tests yet that it has but will do these too.

really looking forward to a flat swim now! 

After Wales this year it should be like a huge swimming pool.

Just updated my excel training plan after IM Wales and noticed the 30 week Fink will start on the week between Xmas and New year, that doesn't seem to far away.

Gosh that's quick I was thinking the coverage would be a few weeks away. I'll wager that you don't see one pirate top
