Training for the Mont Ventoux with Strava

mont ventoux top
Recently I discovered Strava as a tool to start well prepared for the ascent of the Mont Ventoux. In my case my condition was almost zero when I picked up cycling again this summer. In my twenties and early thirties I did a lot of sports. Since our move to France and the renovation of 4 houses of which 2 farms in 13 years I have had little energy for it. Strava offers the possibility with a coupled heart rate monitor and cadence meter to train in a healthy way. You can also keep track of your progress. The only temptation you must be able to resist is not wanting to go faster every time. You simply can not improve your personal records on a certain segment every time... You can follow me via the following link and download many good training GPX routes in the area.
