I have a similar problem and from your replies it seems that there are different approachs (adding endurance rides or replacing the whole week by the corresponding MV week).
I’m following a low volume olympic tri plan and feel that I could do more bike workouts (there are only two TR workouts in the LV plan). As I cannot ride every weekend, I like the flexibility offered by the LV plan and I am therefore considering sticking with it and adding a third workout when I can.
It is still not clear for me what the best approach would be :
- replacing the whole week by the corresponding MV week when I know I can do all 3 workouts
- adding the -2 version of the 3rd MV workout to my LV plan
- adding endurance workout (Z2) for easy TSS
- other ?
Considering that adding workouts to my LV plan will mess with the designed continuous and progressive grind in TSS of the plan, can this harm my progression in any way ?
I am currently finishning base and plan builder is proposing me 2 back to back build phases. Maybe I could start by adding easy endurance ride during the first build and more specific (ex muscular endurance) workouts in the second phase if I am handling well the weekly volume?
