2 questions for over 50’s (triathletes) - I am 20 yrs + triathlete - 7-10 hrs/week all three sports.
I have noticed two things in the last 18 months or so.
I need to pay very careful attention to nutrition during/after trainer road sessions and outside rides of >1 hour. Especially over/unders and threshold. Poor attention leaves me with a “washed out” feeling and what I have called a “sugar headache” for the rest of the day.
What’s your during/post session nutrition and how has it changed over time?
I am moving towards a three week cycle - 2 weeks build - 1 week recovery. This is on 1.5/2 ctl increase per week.
On the 4 week cycle - end of the 2nd build week - I feel wiped out and the quality of the session has been suffering.
Anyone else do this and how did you modify the TR sessions - (which are the same for 20 somethings as for us)
