April 25, 2018 – GNT Bike

Bike

This week we will focus on time in the saddle with a couple power building intervals.

The weather is now suitable for riding outside so get out and do this ride on the road! Just be careful of any gravel that has yet to be swept. The bike path from Anchorage to Eagle River is a great place to do this.

Warm up:

Make sure you complete the full bike warmup found at akathlete.com/warmups

Drills:

Single leg pedaling 3×30 seconds each leg (only perform if doing workout on a trainer)

Main Set:

60 minutes of continuous riding at a comfortable pace.

During the 60 minutes aim for 4-6, one-minute intervals where you push the pace. A gradual hill is a great place to do this.

Cool Down:

5-10 minutes in an EASY gear
