So I’m going away somewhere warm in March for a week and taking my bike. I’m going with family so it’s not a cycling holiday or training camp, but I’m going to have (a) 60-90 minutes most days to get out on the bike in the mornings, and (b) 1 or maybe 2 days where I can do a longer, even “epic” ride.
I’ve timed it so that the week coincides with week 7 (the hardest week) of General Build (low volume*), so the workouts would be San Joaquin +3, Kaiser +2, and Galena +2.
There’ll be plenty of long climbs where I’m going (Tenerife) so I can do short or long intervals as appropriate. Should I try to recreate these workouts with a little extra easy riding to take in the scenery?
And how would you incorporate a longer ride into the week?
*Note that though my plan is low volume, my training isn’t, as I add in a 4 hour ride most Sundays. I can definitely cope with an increase in TSS from volume.
