Think about how you ride your bike, and the muscles that aid in your ability to both turn over the pedals and keep your bike upright. Pick of these exercises and perform 3 sets of each with as little rest as possible in between. Not true. This is a dangerous approach and often times can lead to overtraining, injury, and burn out.
While it may seem counter intuitive, allowing time for long aerobic efforts will make you faster and healthier long term.
Usually lasting hours, the majority of this ride should be at a conversational pace. These sessions can be the hardest to squeeze in because they usually take up the most amount of time. Shoot for 1 long endurance ride each week, and add more as time and race preparedness allows. Most athletes have to work training into the rest of their life, and it can be a real challenge. However, if you know what workouts will produce the best results, with the time you have available, that will help you manage your time more wisely.

Glamorous eh? Always ride with a specific goal in mind. Yet my training was far from aimless. With one eye on next year, I wanted to learn about my body and understand how it would respond to the stress of training. Plus I might even get quicker. These codes dictated my evenings.
The TCTP demands three interval sessions a week plus slower endurance rides. Easy right? Not quite.
Cramming intervals into the evening was challenging. Get home from work, jump on the turbo, eat, go to bed.
The new shorter weekend ride left me with many an hour to fill yet my tired legs ruled out cycling. What to do?! Looking back, my weekly totals were a meagre three to five hours. An hour of intervals on Tuesday and Thursdays followed by more intervals on a weekend, maybe with some endurance tacked on the end.
Super time crunched.
The intervals The novelty of intervals wears thin quick. An hour of suffering is not something to enjoy.
Climbing on the bike is the hardest part. Once on, you bury yourself in pain and loud banging music. More times than not I would finish the session euphoric. Endorphin overload. Some intervals are more enjoyable than others although much depends on how fresh you are.
Attempting any interval with fatigue is asking for trouble. Fast Pedal FP intervals border on the ridiculous but are fun and a welcome change from max out intervals. One for rest days. Of sorts. Over Under OU intervals are painful. Repeatedly riding marginally above or below your threshold quickly takes its toll. Hey, I like variety.
And pain. The Sufferfest is perfect for anyone following the Time-Crunched Cyclist training programme. Because the workouts in the book are all minutes long, and involve high intensity intervals, they are perfectly suited for time on the trainer. Carmichael says it's ok to deviate from the suggested workouts in his plan, as long as you're doing the kind of intensity he's looking for.
If you've done one of the Sufferfest workouts, then you know it's nearly impossible to fit more intensity into an hour. Unless you're bionic. Then you probably could.
So that's the 'no time' excuse for not achieving greatness gone
