I am going in to off season in a couple of weeks, and i want to figure out how to train to maintain some cycling fitness, when focussing on running instead.
Furthermore, we are having our baby no. 2 in january, so i know the time next year is going to be tight.
I plan to start up my running game again, running hopefully 3 times a week, maybee even more until the baby comes. But i want to be able to keep some/most of my biking fitness untill next season, where i know i wont be able to get on the bike so much. ( so would be bad to start from scratch! )
So how would you do it to maintain in 1 or 2 workouts per week? My run training will be getting in miles, and on occation some intervals.
I was thinking if i should do 1 workout with vo2/anerobic efforts, and 1 effort of Sweetspot per week. Would this be sufficient to keep my FTP up somewhat? And what if i can only manage 1 workout, what should it be ? (trainnow?)
Thank you in advance.
( ps. i did read this the good advice on the TR. blog on the Re-build, offseason, maintainance piece.)
