Hi all, I’m a complete novice at cycling and brand-new to The Sufferfest. Road rides have been keeping me sane the past few weeks and I want to introduce structured training so I can hold my own on the bike. The Fitness Kick-Starter plan looks perfect for that, as I’m really starting from zero.
Here’s the thing – I have been strength training pretty regularly for the last few years.
I know I can add Beginner strength workouts to the Fitness Kick-Starter but… dang, one 12min session every other week sure looks low. I can’t see a way to add an Intermediate workout track instead.
Should I stick with Beginner, and swallow that damn pride? Or… on a scale of 1 to stupid, how 10 is it to add an Intermediate strength routine separately? I don’t want to burn myself out (my legs have no idea what they’re in store for, I think…). But I want to get my suffering in where suffering is due
