Didn’t see it mentioned here, but Stephen Seiler only trains one athlete - his daughter. And he tweeted last week about how he moved her from a 7-day training cycle to a 9-day cycle to help regulate intensity.
I have seen that concept discussed here before, and I’ve even played around with it myself, but I thought I’d share. Note that his daughter is a runner, not a cyclist…as you might expect, it’s polarized.
If any of you have tried anything like this, I’d love to see the plan. I couldn’t get past the fact that I have more time to ride on weekends than during week…and it was hard to account for that in a 9 day cycle.
