    Post your power workouts:

    Hi guys - I just got a Powertap wheel for the indoor trainer, and I'm looking to assemble a variety of workouts to keep me going throughout the winter. I'll be following a bit of a plan, but I want some external variety as well. What have ya'll got in the stable?

    The first 30 pages, plus the most recent ones are best. There is some entertainment and human interest to be found about 10-15 pages from the end.

    Have your PT display RPM on the second line, rather than speed, to make things more interesting. Speed doesn't mean much on an indoor trainer.

    Doing some RPM variations at any given power range keeps things interesting. For example, doing base miles with a target of 70-80 rpm for so many minutes, then do 90+ for the same amount. The interval mode sure comes in handy for keeping track of time.

    Do a search for tempo bursts. I thought that was a fun indoor workout, as was Microbursts. Lots of action for less boredom.

    I have a neat little book called Workouts in a Binder - For Indoor Cycling, published by Velopress http://www.velopress.com/cycling.php?id=210 
    You can pick it up from MEC at a price that will make you cry.... but it does get used a lot by me anyway.
    Cheers, Dave
