Hi all! I have been a long time listener to the podcast and started using TrainerRoad last year. Currently I’m in SSB low volume I and REALLY don’t want to have to take a lot of time off from this training plan just because life is happening
I am starting a new job next week and for the first 4-8 weeks I will be traveling to other offices to get familiarized with how things run before my home office opens. During that time I will be gone Sunday night through Thursday night. The company is flying me and putting me up in a hotel for these time periods. (Therefore bringing my bike is not going to happen since it’s the company’s dime.)
My question is this, would it be better to push all my TrainerRoad workouts to Friday, Saturday and Sunday or approximate my scheduled workouts during the week while I am gone? There will be hotel gyms available but I don’t know yet if there will be bikes. I don’t have a portable power meter such as a pedal-based system like Garmin Vector or Powertap P1.
I have listened to the podcast that was done about a year ago on this topic where @Nate shared his best tips for training while traveling. However, they involved portable power meters or bringing his bike with him, neither of which are viable options for me. Any other thoughts on how best to handle this temporary situation?
