Apologies if this has been discussed before: am sure it has but I can’t seem to find the precise advice I am after.
I’ve been using TR for about 18 months to 2 years with the goal of getting generally faster and fitter, and with specific goals of completing 2 century (miles) rides and a big 150 mile ride coast to coast across the north of England. I’ve done centuries before. All my goals this year were wrecked by COVID19 so I’ve basically started my training programme again via plan builder with SSBLV1 initially.
I can manage low volume most weeks (3.5 hrs, 3 sessions per week) but with job, home, kids and other priorities there is no way I can move to mid volume. However, I am planning to get up 30 mins earlier and do a short workout of 15-20 mins before starting the day, on the days when I don’t have a low volume ride. Not necessarily on the bike. I tried Yoga before and liked it but while it increased my flexibility a bit, I don’t think it does much for cardiovascular fitness, and was wondering about some HIIT sessions… however some people seem to actively discourage these saying that it will interfere with the rest needed in between the scheduled TR sessions and might actually detract from training rather than enhance it…
Thoughts welcome. Thanks. What do other people do when you have not enough time for MV but a little time to spare to add to LV.
