With my mountain marathon cancelled I’ve been using the road bike more as my training tool of choice. I’ve been steadily building up the volume in a base period, but with no races to plan for, I’d like some advice as to when to stop increasing volume and shift towards a long maintenance phase, and how the training sessions would differ?
I think my maximum training volume per week is ~12 hours due to family and work commitments. Should I periodise my TSS allowing for a recovery week every 4th week?
I actually use training to get fit for superbike racing, this year competing in a support class at the British Superbike Championship. As such, every other weekend from August until October I am away racing, so training on the road bike will suffer slightly. But racing the bike is good training, I’ll look to wear my HRM and log the training.
Just looking for some advice on how to plan my training over the next few months.
