I have two unrelated questions. Please excuse the beginner nature of both.
First, if I’m on a three day a week plan, does it matter if the rest days / workouts are evenly spaced throughout the week? Would I be losing any benefit if I rode Saturday, Sunday, and Wednesday? Let’s assume I’m not feeling rundown or especially fatigued Sunday morning after the Saturday morning workout.
Second (and this applies more to running, as I don’t have power numbers for that), if I’m trying to maintain the 70/30 or 80/20 split of HR zones, do I slow down on mornings after drinking, when my HR is elevated from that, or should I maintain the speed I know would be in the right zone on a “normal” day?
Thank you for any thoughts.
