Got a new heart rate monitor to help with my training. I’m trying to train such that I don’t have to spend hours a week on the trail bike building in miles. I am following the James Wilson MTB Strength program, which concentrates workouts with interval training and gym time.
I also picked up a 2008 KTM 250XC. My 200 has been great but I think I wanted a longer bike and the 250 offers a longer cockpit. So I shouldn’t look like a bear on a circus bike anymore.
