i race hare scrambles. i have good lap times but i cant stay consistent my first 2 laps are about the same but the last 2 are my trouble laps. i need help staying consistent.
I can relate to the bad knees which is why I can't run on treadmills anymore, hurts to much. However I've found that the elliptical machines do an amazing job, workout wise and there's no impact on the legs/knees. Takes a little bit to get used to though.thanks naturaledge. i have tried running but i cant really do it because i have bad knees and they compress and it doesn't feel to good hahaha. i have read a lot on this and they say the concept 2 machine (rower) is the best for what we do any feed back on that? i have tried it but iv recently have read the stuff on it so haven't given it time.
Ok, you got a nice lite bike, And if you are placing third then your endurance can't be half bad...... I would focus on riding whenever possibel...ya i have tried the Elliptical they kill me hahaha. yes i have been working with my buddy on suspension. and i ride a ktm 144sx and race 200c close to the top normally 3rd. but i look at the lap times if i can stay about the same through the whole race id be close to 1st so im really wanting to get more endurance so i can start moving up.
When I first started I could only do like 10mins, but now I usually go a minimum of 30 min, while keeping my heart rate between 165-180. Then I'll hop on the treadmill with the incline set to max and speed to 3 mph, for another 10 min. After which I cool down for 15 min.hahaha ya but i cant do it for very long. and im not sure but dont you want to be able to do it for a long time?
