This is my second season of using Trainerroad. Last spring I followed LV SSB, General Build and Century before doing a 6 hr mountain bike event in April and a 6 hour road/gravel event in May. Typically I would do the Tuesday and Thursday workouts and then substitute the Saturday ride for a long outdoors ride…sometimes I’d deviate and do both the Saturday workout and the outdoor ride, too.
Jumping forward to this season; I was following the same LV plan (except for doing Sustained Build instead of General) for the same two events, but now that the MTB event was cancelled, the road/gravel event was pushed to November and I’m working from home due to COVID-19, I have a bit more time available. My ultimate goal is to finish a longer 10-11 hr road/gravel event (before the sun goes down) next May so I was thinking of adding a bit of volume without jumping to the commitment of a mid volume plan. Would it be too much stress to add an hour endurance ride like petit on Wednesday, and then still do the planned Saturday workout along with a long outdoor ride on Sunday? Any better ideas?
