I’m at a crossroads of sorts. I work from home so I can usually train at any time, and I’m currently close to the end of my General Build (mid volume) plan. We hadn’t originally planned to travel for the holidays, but recently found out that my grandmother may not make it much longer, so we’ve decided to go out of town to visit from the 19-29th of December.
After that, I’m home for about five days at which point I’ll be able to squeeze in some rides, but I go to Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show from January 5-11th. I won’t be able to train at all during that time–not only will I just be too busy with work, but I won’t have a bike with me.
I could, however, take my bike and trainer when I got out of town for Christmas. It would be a hassle to transport and train from a hotel room, so I guess the big question is: how much fitness might I lose if I go basically three weeks with very little training? I work my ass off for every watt I gain, so the thought of losing anything makes me feel a little sick. But at the same time, if I can get away with taking a few weeks off without a huge hit, it may be worth it to me for the simplicity of travel.
My plan is to start a Rolling Race plan as soon as I get home from Vegas, which I should be able to tackle with little to no interruptions.
