I was talking to a fellow biker (@bazzargh) on Twitter about LEJOG, I was generally moaning about getting used to my new cycle trainer. I was talking about watching tv whilst on the trainer. Straight away he recommended Sufferfest videos, said they were the best thing hes found to train indoors to. I had a look at the website, doing my research as you do.
Sufferfest training videos were recommended everywhere in biking communities, and once i figured out that the $11 price is only £7 the rest was easy. Paid through paypal, the videos are massive files so it does take a while to download but well worth it!
I tried the Angels video saturday morning, unbelievable! They warm you up to get you to the required level then kick your a**! All in a structured way, levels of effort and so many sprints. My legs didnt know what had hit them. This one is a hard hour of biking pain! The video footage is quality and the soundtrack fits really well, not to mention the devilish streak of humour in the comments that pop up!

I tried the Revolver video this morning, very exciting, very hard. Intervals of 1 min full whack followed by 1 min rest, sounds ok but you do it 15 times! As you go on I am sure the recovery minutes get shorter! I found this harder than the first video, probably cos I went for it a little more because I had an idea of how it pans out after doing the first one. Some of the comments that pop up had me laughing out loud,
