I have been reading about Patrick's bike training on his blog. He has been using the Sufferfest videos and reporting how intense the workouts have been. Of course, I thought, "I gotta get me one of them"! So I headed to the Sufferfest website and downloaded the "Hell Hath No Fury" video. The videos are only $11.99 so there was very little risk. I figured I that I could try one and if I
survived liked it, I could order more.
Let's keep this simple... the workout was brutal. I was a sweaty mess at the end of the ride, but it felt good to hammer that bike. You can make this as hard or as easy as you want, but if you stick the with suggested RPE levels during the video, you will be challenged like a big dog. The motto on the website says, "I will beat my @$$ today to kick yours tomorrow". That should give you a clue!
Here is a clip of the video I used today
I have decided to make this a regular part of my training. It gives my bike training more structure. I already ordered another video. This morning I got an email with an online coupon for 20% off "The Downward Spiral" Sufferfest video which has been updated and remastered. It is good for 48 hours. If you want to get in on that deal, use the following code when ordering... FEELSLIKENEW. BTW, I don't get anything for recommending them. In fact, there are a lot of other places on the interwebs where you can download cycling videos. I am just passing along the information to you folks if you want to give it a try.
