    Quality of miles vs. Quantity of miles

    I personally find that quality miles are better for the type of racing I do which are mainly time trials mostly 10 miles at the moment. A typical training ride for me would be around 22 miles averaging 19-20 mph for the first half then increasing my speed to 21-23 mph for the second half.

    Aero bars causing pain on groin area

    Bringing the saddle forward will help wouldn't recommend tilting the saddle down though. Your best bet is to have a level saddle that way you be in a familar position to the rode bike and therefore more powerful (I think). Try using plenty of chamois cream that might help.

    Eating before bed-time
