The Dreaded Trainer

It's that time of year again, where I come to terms with less daylight, forcing me to either ride early in the morning, during the day, which isn't really an option anymore, or at home in the evenings after work. Enter the stationary trainer sessions, consisting of intervals in every painful way. I did some steady state intervals, but they weren't as bad as I remembered.

It's been a while since I was on my CycleOps fluid trainer. It's a quick and great way to get in some focused training before a big race. I've got the Marathon Nationals in Bend, OR this weekend, and wanted to make sure I was dialed in physically. I'm hoping my fitness stayed high since Leadville. I've put in a lot of consistent hours over the past few weeks, but I'm wondering if my sessions were intense or long enough.
