Looking at my calendar for the month, it appears I’ve been assigned a recovery week immediately prior to taking a week off (for family vacation). The time on bike is normal, but the TSS for those days is low (looks like easy Endurance rides).
I am coming off a pretty heavy month of training, with a B race next weekend, then a 6-hour XC on the 20th. Should I just take the nearly 2 weeks of recovery (Sun, Mon following race, 3 easy rides, then a full week completely off), or swap 1-2 of the endurance rides for something short/intense, or something else? I’ve attached those weeks below. I won’t be training on vacation at all (well, maybe some calisthenics).
Hi, its because you have marked your Race as an A event so the AI expects you to have a hard day. There is not really a correct answer. You are getting a couple days off after the race and if you feel recovered you can change the work outs up a bit.
True beach vacation - drive down Friday, Sat-Fri relaxing, drive home following Sat. The “kid” is nearly 30, so chasing him around isn’t required (thankfully, vacations 20 years ago were exhausting).
Understood on needing recovery after the XC marathon. Just thought 11 days completely off the bike, plus 3 relatively easy endurance rides, seemed excessive. I guess I’ll see how I feel on the 23 and adjust if if I feel like it.
