Going to try and push myself tonight by joining some friends on an open road ‘TT’ thing (ignoring the fact that it is up/down/crazy steep and tight at times … lets just ignore the 12-13 miles (nut sure exactly) of pain)
I’m only ‘racing’ against myself as these folks are all club rider types, BUT i want to find out how hard I can push for 12 miles and get a ‘real world’ example of how much effort I can put in out of personal interest.
As it starts only a few miles away, I was going to actually do a warm up so that my lungs don’t die in the first mile (I don’t have good lungs).
I can do that at home, but if I do that, then I’ll then have 3 miles to ride (so can stay warm) BUT then I have to stand around for 20 minutes before I actually go (1 minute intervals)
So is there any point in doing a warm up which will be 20 minutes before starting?
Coaches? You folks must have to deal with these scenarios when you have racers?
