And as you're only doing an hour at a time, you should be doing intervals interspersed with Z1/Z2 days. Or you're never going to build any muscle, you're just going to keep breaking it down.
Cool! Yeah, that's what I thought, some kind for "forced" intervals.

I'm actually doing 2 to 3 hours. 1 hour outdoor on the bike and 1 to 2 hrs indoor on the trainer. I do less intensity on the trainer indoors. ~80% Maximum heart rate.
