So I just added a 125mile gravel race to my calendar exactly 7 days before what was my A race. Obviously, the original race no longer be my A race (I will not be taking it easy in the gravel race), so I switched the gravel race to an A and the original race to a B in PlanBuilder.
But I still want to perform as well as possible in that climbing road race. Two years ago, I did the same race two years ago 7 days after a 1700 TSS week in Europe with disastrous results. Outside of what PlanBuilder recommends, does anybody have advice on how to handle the week between? Obviously lots of recovery and rest. I think I want to do an opener. Any intensity?
