Apologies in advance as there are probably numerous forums out there with similar or same questions.
I am new to TR as of last week,
I have began a mid volume sweet spot base training program but notice that Saturday and Sunday rides are scheduled with 1:20 - 1:30hr rides with varying intervals,
My question is, as i always ride a Saturday morning bunch ride (typically 3 - 4hrs) am i ok with substituting both these Saturday and Sunday TR rides with the outdoor? assuming my Strava suffer score measures in the same way TR does the TSS of the outdoor ride is around 300TSS, (where both TR rides would only account for 200TSS).
Sundays are always family day so squeezing one in Sunday is a no go
Am i going to be losing anything by not doing these scheduled rides?
The outdoor bunch ride certainly varies in intensity so its not as if im sitting at the back doing a comfortable endurance recovery 3hr ride…
Thanks in advance,
