I know TR plans often have the option of replacing the Sunday ride with a long endurance session, and I’ve been doing so for a while (4-5 hour rides on Sunday).
But now with the ongoing quarantine and nice weather coming out in NorCal (and my loss of willpower to grind threshold intervals now that my races are cancelled), I’m open to spending even more time on the bike over the weekends, and want to replace my Saturday workout with a long outdoor ride, primarily riding endurance zone.
Any thoughts from the community on ride planning / strategy to maintain the adaptations targeted for Saturday rides (whether in the context of SSB or Build or Specialty)? Basic thought is to maintain a relatively similar TSS to the plan ride being replaced, but curious what else comes to mind.
[Context: Been using the platform for just over 6 months now and I’ve have seen a healthy boost in power (250W to 308W FTP) from following HV SSB1, SSB2, SSB2 again, and General Build 1 (though I wasn’t very compliant over the holidays).]
