How much work does it take to become a cyclist who can put in some decent performances in local TT and Road Races?

In the zone ...

In the zone ...
Continuing the theme of challenging myself to keep in the required HR zones I had a great ride today. 95 mins of 100-165 bpm endurance miles. Chuffed to bits to say that I averaged 158 bpm and managed to average 91 rpm cadence.

Now i know this may not sound like a massive achievement but believe me when I say that in the past I have worked from the premise that if the sweat isn't dripping off my face in rivulets reminiscent of the roof at Wimbledon on a typical British summer's day, then I haven't trained hard enough. When pushed for time to fit in enough quality training, as I saw it, "eye-balls out" was the order of the day. So this sub-maximal training is still relatively new ground for me and it's clear why it's the right thing to do and I can see how it will also make recovery and keeping a programme going for more than just a matters of days/weeks doable. So long may it last.
