I like to do my endurance rides outdoors when possible, and this should be the easiest thing in the world to just go out and ride in zone 2 power. But I live in a hilly area, so it’s pretty difficult to stay in zone 2 the whole time, as at some point I’d end up crawling up a hill at a very low cadence trying to stay in zone 2, so invariably I end up with some time in higher power zones.
From a training perspective, does this matter? Am I over thinking it? Or what should I do differently?
This was my 2 hour endurance for this week for an idea of what time I’m spending in each zone. Sorry if it’s a bit of a dumb question but on a trainer everything is so controlled and it’s in my nature to get things pretty exact!
