Have been trying my best to follow the low volume build plan and have just moved to the speciality phase (century). I’m only one week in but like the last build phase, I’m finding I’m struggling to complete the first workout of the week as I’m doing Monday-Friday-Sunday due to working away during the week. So I successfully did Tallac +2 yesterday but was insufficiently recovered and failed during the third interval of Washington +2 this evening. Was well fuelled (home made cake ) Had a couple of instances during the build phase like this. Could just be a one off but my legs were screaming and a quick back pedal wasn’t enough to save the interval.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how to reconfigure the plan in such a training timeframe? I only have Friday through Monday to train using TrainerRoad but would also like some flexibility to go outdoors at least one day at the weekend. Main goal is just to improve my fitness as much as possible, not training for a big race but have a century sportive coming up in May. Thanks for reading!
