Hey, fairly new to proper training so forgive me if this seems like a newbie question!
I’ve basically gone through the plan builder and have gone for the low training load (4-5hrs) and low volume with an end goal of the start of June hoping that there will be some races around then. If not it’ll be nice to be at my fittest state in the summer months!
I’m on a plan that does 3 difficult sessions a week (Tues/Thurs/Sat) and I was wondering how this would work around real-world rides? For example, I sometimes go mountain biking in the week with some friends, could this be done on a Monday/Wed or would it be better to substitute it for a Tues/Thurs workout?
Also, I enjoy my social road rides on the weekends so if I was to still do these, should I try to limit it to riding on a Sunday after my TR workout the day before or can I replace the long Saturday indoor workout with an outside 30-40+ mile outdoor ride?
I want to try and stick to the training plan as much as possible to see the most gains but I’m just conscious not to be too much of a slave to the software which may stop me from going out on social rides with friends etc!
