I’m thinking about the soon transition from outdoor to indoor riding and looking at starting the TT Plan. But I noticed both TT options are for “Indoor + Outdoor” w/ or w/o strength. I want to ride indoors (not really, but I clearly don’t want to ride outdoors) - I mean that seems to me like the point of SUF - having a plan in spending the next 12 weeks in a controlled simulated environment (with a fan) rather than in outside icey temperatures. Yeah, I’m pretty whimpy but the chill just kills any enjoyment I get out of cycling.
So I thought no problem surely there are videos to do the outside rides inside. Not exactly. (I also did a search thinking some one else must have come upon this, but came up empty.)
So, for example, selecting the intermediate plan w/ strength yields in the first week the first outside ride as: “Tempo 2 X 20” for 2:15; the next is “Sub-Threshold w/ Surges 3 X 12” for 2:00. So when I then look at video options to try and match these outside rides, the closest I can see for the first is “Tempo 2 X 25” but it lasts 4:00; the closest to the next is “Sub-Threshold w/ Surges 4 X 12” but it lasts 2:30.
Tempo w/ Surges 1 X 60 is the next weekend outside for 2:00 and the video matches it in name but lasts 3:30. Lastly as example, “Endurance +” is outside at 3:00 but the video under that name is 1:30.
It doesn’t sound like bringing the outdoors rides indoors.
What to do?
