Tour of Sufferlandria: Good For Winter Training?
There was some good debate recently on our Winter Cycling Training post about whether using Sufferfest videos might be too intense during a period of traditional “base” mileage.
My own personal take? Life’s busy and making the most of the limited time we have to train makes high intensity workouts a very effective way to train muscle and heart tissues to work more effectively.
Add in the peer pressure and the fear factor created by an upcoming big training block such as the Tour of Sufferlandria and for me it’s a no brainer. I need to be scared to work hard and that’s also why I enter sportives regularly to keep me scared and training!
I’ll be riding The Tour of Sufferlandria. Will you?
