After roughly 4 weeks without outdoor workouts, my mind was craving fresh air (even with Giro, Vuelta, and classics).
Now I have a rest week after the end of build and the weather is looking nice.
Originally, the plan was set for 6:30 of riding in endurance pace, but changing workouts to outside Townsend/Brasstown/Fletcher increased from 1:30 to 2:15 and Boarstone from 2:00 to 3:00.
In my mind increasing the rest week from 6:30 to 9:45 seems like a lot?
Why is this?
It seems outside endurance work is not “worth” the same as indoor, I know coasting and terrain does a lot to make the ride easier.
