High Impact Cycling Workout #15 – Time Trials

This is my favorite workout.  Not because it is easy.  On the contrary, Time Trials are very hard because you are working close to your lactate threshold (the absolute hardest effort you can maintain for 30 to 60 minutes).  It is my favorite because it is the best workout for improving your performance in a time trial, which is an individual race against the clock over a predetermined distance (usually 10 to 25 miles but sometimes longer depending on the event).  In addition to pure cycling races, the time trial is the bike portion of virtually all triathlons.  So if you want to improve your performance in a triathlon, this is the workout for you!  Click below to download the workout.
