So I have sampled the Low, Medium and High volume plans and found;
- high volume is too much for me
- medium volume is OK but I can’t do other rides as well as the training plan (and be able to complete the training plan workouts as prescribed)
- Low volume seems way too little/light but I do supplement my training plan with other rides (indoor and outdoor) of various efforts BUT still able to do my 3 workouts a week to the letter.
Am I better off doing a medium volume plan and sacrifice other rides or is it ok doing the low volume plan and doing other rides as well? Structure is all well and good (and being retired I have all the time in the world) but I do like just doing some ‘fun’ rides be they 1.05 intensity (Zwift Race) or 0.65 intensity (outdoor noodle with the wife).
