Hi all, new to the forum, first post.
I’ve been reading about the benefits of long zone two rides and I’m starting to include these on the weekends. My plan is to combine these with intervals, zwift races and short strava hill segments during the week.
My question is: do I spoil the zone two training effect by including sprints or (shorter) intervals during my zone two rides?
This would be partly to make the rides more fun, but also to get sprint training into my training, as during the week I’ll be focussing on longer intervals - 1 minute plus.
Examples: 3-4 hour zone 2 ride with 6*15 second sprints with loads of rest in between through out the ride? Or going for the odd Strava segment (1 to 5 minute hills)?
