After being made redundant and the whole COVID-19 lock down. I have moved from LV to MV SSP block, with the increase in decent weather I have been going outside for decent rides. I find harder to recover from, and they’re kinda ruining my training so to speak.
Would you guys advise to drop down to a LV week after a ride outdoors, then increase to a MV week before heading outside again (as I don’t know how often ill go outside) or shall I drop MV to LV and enjoy the rest.
With the lock down, I want to use the time to GET FAST so to speak, hence why I increased to MV…before heading outside I was smashing all the MV work outs…I am just finding the out door rides harder to recover from as I generally go Full Gas because it’s outside and not on a trainer. With the MV plan putting in 5 work outs in a week and myself having 1 outdoor ride…I find myself needing extra rest days…
I use apps like Elevate and Intervals.icu but when they say im “optimal” I still feel slightly fatigued.
Any tips to handle the extra TSS or longer workouts (90mins +) with having a decent day in the saddle outside.
