Around 2 weeks ago I thought I'd mix up my fitness and endurance training and take up cycling, i also want to get into Triathlons next year so it was the logical way to go. I bought my first road bike, a Cell Team Shimano 105 and have started putting in cycling training sessions 1 to 2 times a week.
My current best cycling times are:
(I'm going to maintain a complete history so I can see how the far i've come :)
14km: 45m (22 November 2008 - Training - 4 rounds of 3.7km)
22km: 60m (29 November 2008 - Training - 6 rounds of 3.7km)
29km: 1h 20m (06 December 2008 - Training - 8 rounds of 3.7km)
33km: 1h 30m (13 December 2008 - Training - 9 rounds of 3.7km)
37km: 1h 40m (20 December 2008 - Training - 10 rounds of 3.7km)
44km: 1h 50m (10 January 2009 - Training - 12 rounds of 3.7km)
It an expensive sport to get into as you need to purchase and maintain all the gear, but it is very rewarding and hopefully i can take part in a few events before attempting any Triathlons in 2009.
Training for cycling should always be planned to make it more effective. In this way, cyclist will get to know what certain training would enhance different aspects of their ability that should be focused on during training.
