You're not very good with definitions...
"Ancedote - a short account of a particular incident or event, especially of an interesting or amusing nature."
The plural of which is not data.
You forgot to cut and paste the rest of it However, over time, modification in reuse may convert a particular anecdote to a fictional piece, one that is retold but is "too good to be true".
No belief need. Measuring gains are easy. Powermeters do this rather well.
Most do not have powermeters. Gains are realized by beating your friends ON THE ROAD.
Like.... traffic? Angry magpies? Freds?
No like temperature, weather, road conditions fortunately no magpies, or cow pies on this side of the globe.
Yeah road is great... but when its not an option, the trainer works rather well. Or are you saying it cannot improve performance. Is that what you are really saying Stella? .
Yeah when it's not an option you go on the trainer but you train ON THE ROAD.
Every wondered why? Or are trackies not "real" pros Stella?
We are taking about getting better ON THE ROAD. Trainers are a maintenance tool.
Preference? Yeah road for sure. But the question is not preference. Its whether gains can be made on the trainer. Answer:- Yes, without question.
You can make gains on the trainer but ultimately true gains are made ON THE ROAD. IF you were out of shape and you got on the trainer you will get gains. But ultimately you want to make your gains on the road because that is where you make your true gain on becoming a ROAD cyclist.
Appeal to authority. Nice. The pros do it hence it must be the best and only way to do it. Pathetic.
There is nothing to argue here. If pros did not think that was the best way they would not do it.
That is too logical to understand for you. Got it!
All the pros, huh? That is really hilarious. Any facts in your beliefs here, or just "doing what the pros do"?
Any pro does their training on the road that's where it counts. Not on the trainer.
Strange, I would have thought it would be improving power output and the watt per kilo of body weight ratio would make you a better climber. But you go head and just climb.
Where do you think improving power output and watts per kilo happens? by doing HILL REPEATS!
