seeking a training partner/group

Postby BarryTas » Mon May 24, 2010 8:33 am

I am seeking someone or a small group to train with over winter.

I will be training mid morning Saturday/Sunday for the Winter and Freycinet Challenge. If any one is interested or know of anyone interested please let me know.

the Winter Challenge is 37kms on the 22/08/10 and the Freycient Challenge is 60kms and 35kms on the 9-10/10/10.

so the training will be on an undulating course to simulate to races and designed to build up to a 1hour TT. Thus training on Elderslie starting with 20 mins hard, 5 rcovery , turn around for 20 mins hard back.......then slowly build on top of that, ie 20x2
2ox2
25x2
25x2
30x2
30x2
35x2
35x2
40x2
40x2
1hour
1hour
1hour

oh and the matatory hill sprtint up Berridale Rd hill from the Bike Track to Allunga Rd when riding past each way

I would prefer to race on the actual TT courses, Sandford, Richmond and Seven Mile.

I now have 3 weeks off work to train. With redundancy comes training and a new bike. I am aiming for morning bike or trainer session. Afternoon gym session, hip flexor, and squats, and core work.

Rob , i hope everything is ok on the employment front.

I prefer to train on Elderslie RD as it is long, quiet, flatish any easy to get to. But i will get sick of it and will need to mix it up

Where is Elderslie Road - I would prefer during the week for obvious reasons. I don't know what the future will hold right now.


Are you going to do the TT in June Barry? Hopefully we get a still day. The Richmond course can be very fast! Even on a similar day to Seven Mile it's still faster.

I'd be interested but difficult to make that regular on Saturday or Sunday with family/church commitments. Could do early Sunday morning if finish by 10am. Mind you I might have trouble keeping up.

Hello mcdurdin

we could leave earlier, esp for summer but it is just too cold in the morning.

It takes about 50mins to an hour to get the road near brighton.

The beauty of TT training is that you race against the clock, so 20 mins one direction, 5 mins recovery free spinning then turn around at try to get back to the start within 20mins.....its like a handicap

Gotcha on TT -- didn't click that was what you'd be doing. Am planning on doing the Winter Challenge with some blokes from work so some training would probably be a good idea... Weekday evenings also work for me but the brr factor kicks in here as well.

Haven't ridden any time trials before so this will be a learning exercise for me. Look forward to meeting up soon for training.

Any time you have a bicycle between your legs. There is additional training benefit if the bicycle is moving forward.

Confucius gave two training tips:-

"Miles in the legs are like money in the bank....you cant spend it if you have not saved it". (He did not know about plastic cards, or performance enhancing drugs)

"He who speeds down hill does not appreciate the gravity of the situation".

no one wanted to play with me this weekend.

Saturday - only made it the Granton, head ache, dizzy and then it rained.

Sunday -Training achieved - i was hurting on the way home as i only packed 1 goo and 2 drinks. I had a week off all training and 2 weeks off the bike, and a total of 82kms, 23 at top TT speed.



So 9am this saturday, but undecided for sunday as a might do the STVCC 20TT, i am not feeling very fit/fast ATM

6am on a weekend is a bit early for me, 8am is my earliest. I need a sleep in after early mornings during the week. 6am starts during the week are ok with me though.

Fair enough... I've got a 2 hour window on Sunday morning from 7:30-9:30, need to be in Battery Point before 10am. Does that work?

I havent ridden since Thursday, clocked up 181 training ks this week so I am fairly happy. Friday my back was in excrutiating pain so i didnt ride Fri, Sat or today. I would rather have a few days off and let my back heal than race today and not ride for weeks while I get my back seen to. I'm going to see a sports physio, osteo during the week.

Lookin forward to riding tomorrow morning and I'll see Mark during the week and Master6 on Wed.
