Posted: 21:41 - 12 Nov 2018 Post subject: How well will I do?
I've been jogging for 3/4 years and have decided to switch to my bike as it's not being used and can't jog anymore due to work/issues. I haven't been on my bike yet but I'll be going starting this week.
I had 3 different routes for my jogging so I would go the same way biking. I ran at a fairly slow pace and did 70-90 mins endurance without stopping so I'm wondering (bare in mind I haven't been jogging since July so 4 months!) would I still have some endurance? Or if I go out now I'll be tired straight away? I should try one night
So basically does running endurance help with going biking?
I did a lot of running years ago and tested 1.5 mile time a few times before heading off for a 1600 mile cycle trip, doing about 70 miles a day (on a hardtail MTB). I came back much fitter but my mile and a half time increased by a full minute. It helps your endurance but not necessarily your all round performance.
I was 19 stone when I first jumped on a bike as an adult.
I rode, with a group, for 15 miles, stopping for coffee. I then went out and did 15 miles every other night and 30-35 on a weekend day.
Cycling is as hard as you make it. I live in the flattest part of the country (the Fens) which has a geographical advantage. But honestly, you should be able to surpass any run distance within no time at all. ____________________ [Between Bikes]
