    I was trying to help! Interval training has worked wonders for me before, there are more and more people advising people to use it. Jeez...

    What I cant understand jim is.. why you cycle to work (and possibly to the gym) then go on the stationary bike?

    Firstly too much cycling can only add to the boredom and secondly the gym bike will be nowhere as comfortable as your own bike setup. :blush:

    Fair enough, were never going to agree.

    My advice for the OP, do what you feel most comfortable doing.

    My advice to the OP, watch what you eat (ish), and each time you go out try and push enough to get breathless. Try and go out every day.

    It worked for me....

    (and still does)

    To answer your queerie, and Lukesdad's comment...

    "There are NO HILLS in the West Midlands.":biggrin:

    If I'm going to get through The Castleton Classic 200 Audax, my commute ride is not tough enough.
    There are two 10% hills on my commute; and if I tackle them at 400+ Watts, they only last seconds.:tongue:

    Jimbo before I got into cycling since my school years anything over 20mins on a stationary (gym) bike would be torture. With the introduction of portable music it got better but if I had the chance theres no way I would be on a stationary bike if I had the option to ride outdoors.

    I guess as your training for the classic and are in the gym anyway... :smile:

    Don't use that formula!

    Do a test!

    I'm 54.
    220-54 = 166 max heart rate.

    I cruise up steady climbs with minimal stress at 166!

    Sub max test I've done suggest anything between 180 and 200 as my max.
