Turbo trainer weather

If its not been snowing over the past couple of days its been sleeting, or freezing rain, or just cold. Whichever way to look at it, its not cycling weather - defo not on-road, even off-road would be a challenge.

So the turbo trainer is in the kitchen with the beOne attached. Did a 45 minute interval session last night - which was not too bad. Stuck the Garmin cadence/speed sensors on so I could see what I was actually doing.

I start with a 10 minute warm up at 100rpm +, then increase resistance but keep speed over 40kph. Do that for 2 mins, rest for 1, then 3 mins on 2 off., 4 mins on, 1 off at a slightly lower resistance. And keep that for 35 minutes or so. Might give it a lash again tonight. But this sinus problem may put the skids on that idea.
