I currently rode about 20 hours a week. Add in some running, and some gym rock climbing. I have a lot of time I can spend on training. I’ve got quite a bit of experience.
I hired a coach a couple years ago to help with my training, found it extremely useful, but want to split the difference in cost and considering TR instead of just winging it like I’ve always done.
Question is, which volume plan should I use knowing I am still going to do large volumes of riding? Should I do low volume and just do my extra stuff, or a high volume plan? I’m thinking low, but, that’s why I’m asking.
I’ll be training for XCO format primary, so about 1-2 hour race durations. But I also like to sprinkle in the occasional 30 mile run or 6+ hour bike ride for fun. Not much interested in cutting back on overall volume, I enjoy being outdoors too much. Also live in SoCal so weather is rarely an issue.
