1 hour of weights, 1 hour 24 minutes on the trainer
It seems it's good to work on strength training the same day you ride. You supposedly produce more watts on the ride because the leg muscles have been pushing heavy weights already. Yes, there is a lot more to this but that's the just of it. And why 1 hour and 24 minutes? Because I was supposed to ride for 1:45 but since I was on the trainer, I cut off 20% due to no downhills, lights, cars, people and any other hazard out on the road. I'm following Carmichael's training plan to the letter. And if I still suck... there's no hope.
