Hi all. I’m doing Haute Route Ventoux in October and have just finished my rest week following SSBMVII. I’ve decided on an overall plan, however a few things are tripping me up in regards to my approach. My cycling is for 3 days, 3 weeks into a 6 week European holiday
As it stands right now I’ll finish my specialty at the beginning of August, which leaves about 5 weeks or so before we fly out. What would you recommend I do in those 5 weeks before leaving? Should I simply start a new base phase or possibly repeat the build or specialty phase?
What could I be doing in those 3 weeks of traveling to maintain my fitness as much as possible? I figured my best bet was to find a gym in whatever city it is that I’m in and do an ad-hoc trainer road workout every 3 days or so.
Seeing as I have a 3 week gap between flying out and doing the actual event, should I go as hard as possible in those 5 weeks before I fly out and then simply rest as best I can for the 3 weeks while traveling?
Any advice is welcome.
