I’m new to TrainerRoad, and am rolling into week 6 of SSBI. I’ve been concurrently training in the pool. I have a background in competitive swimming, and wouldn’t normally take a recovery week this early in the training season. My frequency and intensity in the pool are down from what I’d normally do, in deference to adding cycling training to the mix. I’ve been doing 3x~2500 yards when in past seasons I’d be doing 4-5 x ~2800, and the intensity of my work has been ~85% of previous norms.
Should I back off the swimming a bit this week as well, or carry on as usual? What says the forum?
