So I’m just about to start SSBMV2 and a new role (4 days & shifts)
I was considering commuting by bike (12 flat ish miles each way @ z2) and swapping to the low volume option.
Or I can simply commute by car and keep the medium volume going but that seems wrong from a personal value perspective but do I tighten the nut on that and focus on fitness gains as I can commute after May?
My A event is 9th May and I want to try to avoid digging myself a hole in terms of over doing the stress on my body while at the same time getting as fit as possible over the winter.
I’m conscious that the build phase is brutal and the over arching aim is to remain illness and injury free
To add more detail, I’m 53 in my second winter of structured training
Any views welcome and thanks in advance.
