My target event is a 200 mile gravel race in Late October(fingers crossed). Starting SSBMVII with a path of SSBI>SSBII>SPB>CS. All Mid-Volume.
My intent is to get a long ride in on the weekends. Generally the Plans seem to have a progression of Threshold or Sweet Spot work on the weekends. I know life will get in the way from time to time and a long outside ride won’t happen every weekend. Would I just want to sub back in whatever the workouts were supposed to be that weekend, even though I wouldn’t be following the progression? There also is no way to assure that a long ride will always be on a certain day, so how should I prioritize which workout to keep and which to scrap?
