Question about adding volume.
I have a work schedule that takes me away for days at a time. Also, it’s not consistently Monday through Friday. For example leave on a Wednesday back Saturday, two days off, leave Tuesday back Thursday, five days off, etc…
I have been doing the low volume plans and try to add miles inside (especially in the winter) or outside (especially in the summer).
My question is what kind of volume should I shoot for?
The plans tipically has three interval workouts a week. Should I add easy recovery or endurance or combination? On weeks that I’m on the road should I include running? If so what kind of pace?
On the days I’m home and am able to do the workouts, what would you think about doing the longer + of the workouts when they’re available? For example, instead of doing the one hour Ericsson, do the 2 hour Ericsson +4.
The weekly TSS as prescribed by the plan is low for my capabilities. I’m haveing trouble being consistent because of my travel schedule.
Thanks for any insights!
