HI All, Not sure if I’m posting in the correct category, but here goes…
Sufferfest noob here, started the 14 day trial today after receiving an email from Wahoo. I had heard of Sufferfest but never took the time to have a look at the program. This was a BIG miss for me as I had no idea that Sufferfest included not only structured cycling workouts, but also Yoga, and Strength Training AND Mental Toughness, how awesome is that ! ! !
Setup everything and did the first workout in the 14 day trial plan, “Getting Away With It”. Everything connected perfectly using Sufferfest on my WIN10 computer, Kickr SNAP, cadence sensor and my HR strap. I really enjoyed the workout and accompanying vids and music. I have been using that wildly popular cycling app riding around the fantasy worlds for 3 1/2 years, but honestly felt my training was going nowhere. I’m really looking forward to a more structured approach and the other components of Sufferfest are very intriguing and ready to dive in.
Couple of questions:
Really like the calendar. Can the Sufferfest calendar export to outlook?
Today’s workout included several “off the saddle” intervals. For some reason off the saddle on the trainer is really difficult for me, out of the road off the saddle is no problem. I feel I can’t get in a good body position for these efforts with the bike fixed on the trainer. Any suggestions?
Today’s effort included a cool down. I would have preferred a longer cool down to bring the heart rate lower. However, once the workout ended I had no way to monitor heart rate. Any ideas how I can monitor HR once the Sufferfest workout /cool down ended? Are there any Sufferfest specific cool downs that I could have started?
Anyway this Forum has a tremendous amount of useful information and the nutrition article by Coach Suzie S will be VERY useful to me for sure.
Thanks in advance, Max
