Hi - I recently discovered the TR podcast, which is of course leading me to go from just getting on my bike and Zwifting as much as I have the time and motivation for, to wanting to dig into a training plan for (hopeful) summer 2021 rides on the calendar.
However, every year between Feb. 15th and Apr. 15th I work 70 hrs/wk of desk work. That leaves just enough time for good sleep, and 30-40 minutes of exercise a day. Looking at the low volume plans with 60-90 minute workouts three days a week, that works from a weekly time commitment. However, I often have issues sleeping if I don’t get exercise every day, so I don’t like to stack that weekly time up on fewer than 6 days. Is there some way a TR plan can be scheduled with 30-45 minute training blocks? I can easily fill the off-days with other workouts, including running and strength training.
After April 15th work calms down for the rest of the year, and this is no longer an issue. Currently planning on a couple gran fondos. Normally I’d do Triple Bypass, but the date doesn’t work for me this year, so probably doing Copper Triangle instead. I used to live in Colorado, but now live in flat land, but I like to get out to the mountains for at least one big ride each year. But who knows where TR might lead me.
Thanks for the help, looking forward to kicking things off with TR!
