But that doesn't help you keep track of your training effort over time. It's a lot easier to train efficiently if you have data. You might look at getting something like a Garmin Edge 25 and a Garmin HR transmitter with strap, and a Garmin speed sensor, so the thing will record distance on your trainer. If you did that, you'd also need to subscribe to TrainingPeaks Premium so you can use the Performance Manager Chart. Of course all that costs money, but it's hard to track progress or really anything without data.
Results matter
