Travelling at end of build block

Apologies if this is a repost, and mods, lock me up if so, but I can’t find it so here goes.

I have a trip over the weekend right at the end of my build block. I can still get my Friday workout in, but Saturday and Sunday are out.

Right now, my current thinking is to back-to-back hard workouts on Thursday and Friday, and drop the longer Sunday ride. But, since I’m going into an off week, I’m almost feeling like I could do the long SS ride on Friday and still get the tough vo2 in on Monday before the recovery kicks in.

Would that be an issue with adaptation though, I wonder.

In any case, I’m still looking at snow outside my window, and will be for a while yet, so none of this probably matters too much, haha :roll_eyes:

I"m gonna assume you’re on a mid volume plan, and say you could take out the easy wednesday ride and smash the 4 workouts into the week, pop a rest day in there somewhere and then have some extra recovery, or even add the wednesday ride back in friday if you wanna eek out the full week’s tss.

Otherwise, I would back to back your hard workouts Th/F, prioritizing whichever workout is more important to your overall goals, and then slide into your recovery week. I can see the bro-science going either way on a workout Monday. I would say leave your “easier” of the workouts out as an optional come Monday and if you feel up to it do it, otherwise leave it out.

should have mentioned, on high-volume so not a lot of middle-week easy time. But that makes sense and lines up with my gut. Do the hard ones Thursday/Friday and see how I feel Monday. Thanks!
