So many questions lol.
By way of background I spent the beginning of last year having some 1-2-1 coaching before a loss of motivation and home life changes put the kybosh on things, spending the rest of the year (until end of October jumping from 1 platform to another). Eventually I got a virus ( it COVID) and had for the most part 2 months entirely off the bike. In January I came across Trainer Day and have so far stuck with it.
In the 2-3 years previously I’ve jumped around from xert to trainerroad to zwift and back never really sticking with one platform but training reasonably consistently.
The only real racing I’ve done is UK hill climbs (look it up if you don’t know about it). Basically these are short uphill time trials from 1min upto 15-20mins. I’ve done a circuit race but really didn’t like the wheel to wheel action and a few club TT’s which I’ve enjoyed. I also occasionally mountain bike and in fact my event in May is a mountain bike event but from a fitness perspective indoor and road training has been far easier for me.
I live in Sheffield in the UK which is hilly (for the UK anyway) and so like a good bit of climbing. As I’ve alluded to above, I’d like to do some short TT’s before boiling down to have a fair crack at some hill climbs I. Sept/Oct and maybe even qualify for the Nationals if possible.
I’m just 43 and so a vet in terms of category and generally can manage 6-8hrs training a week (though I’m hoping to add a couple of commutes into my routine).
I’ll try to post a few screenshots from intervals. Let me know what else you might need.
