Nice, sounds like you are on the right track!!I can only ride once or twice every second weekend due to work and being a single dad. My riding buddy and I are aspiring to ride the roof in a year or two and it it was apparent that while our fitness was improving, it wasn’t improving anywhere near fast enough.
So one weekend I couldn’t ride, I put on my running shoes and went for (God forbid!) a run. And to my surprise I actually enjoyed it. Since then I’ve built up my fitness through running to the point where I simply don’t get tired on the bike anymore. In fact it seems now like my riding skills are lagging way behind my fitness. It was quite the other way round about three months ago.
I use the Nike Run Club app and follow the training plan it set up for me. It includes body weight workouts in between the running which improve strength, mobility and fitness. The app takes all the guessing out of the equation and makes one keen to stick to the plan and keep on going. I am now trying to work in some cycling too but this takes many hours and I find it hard to fit into my schedule. But this is very good for enduro as it builds proper stamina over the many hours which you’d be on the bike during an enduro race. Plus old Jonny Walker himself said long distance (more than like 2hrs) cycling is one of the best form of cross training for enduro.
Anyways guys this is what has been working for me. Try it. [emoji16][emoji106]
Looking forward to seeing some of you at Snow & Rock in Lesotho this year?[emoji1306]
