(sorry, posted on tri board as well)
Building Bike Endurance and Speed:
I aim to bike 2-3x a week. I want to build endurance, speed and master my triathlon route. I ride around 10mph (yes, slow).
My triathlon course is a hilly 17.5 mile course. I try to do the course once a week and barely avg 10mph on that course, more like 9.5 or 9.75mph. I go faster on the downhills of course and slightly faster on the flatter portions but lose it all on the hills.
I also ride local trails that are not difficult and has no hills like the ones on my tri course. The trails cover over 40 miles.
Sunday I did almost 20 miles hoping that riding longer distances will help my endurance.
How do I go about build speed and endurance?
Do I need to ride my actual tri course more often?
Will going longer distance on the trails help me?
