After spending the spring and summer adrift in the american nightmare, I’ve re-upped my sub and got targets for next racing season. The 2 hour weekend rides prescribed are good, but long rides in the fall are the best.
What are your thoughts about upping weekend workouts to 3-5 hours? I can try it and adjust on feel/HRV, but I’m wondering about experiences doing this. Easy enough to absorb the stress or do you make extra room for recovery during the week?
