With only about a year of indoor training under my belt I come to realize
I’m a slave to ERG-mode …and I’m done now.
All my bike trainers so far could handle even the quickest changes in intensity SUF has to offer, so I never ran into problems taking the “easy road”. The only time I touched level mode was during the Full Frontal Fitness Test.
Now I’m re-reading Coach Mac Cassin’s excellent article about:
IS ERG MODE KILLING YOUR TRAINING?
I want to change this and go back to the roots (for a while).
I want to invite you all, especially the newbies like me, to join me on a personal challenge.
No matter the workout, let’s ride every video in level mode.
Un-official LEVEL MODE MARCH MADNESS Challenge
When: Every workout in march 2021
Going all out will finally mean all out, and not just hitting a number.
When we feel great, our numbers will skyrocket,
when it’s just not our day, let’s power down a bit - without feeling guilty.
I’m certain we will learn a bit more about ourselves in the process.
Of course seasoned sufferlandrians are welcome to join, but I am pretty sure you already know what it’s all about.
PS: There is already a general discussion on this topic in → this ← thread.
