Some ideas and comments:
– You might want to look at the “Step Test” piece on p132 of TFUA
– Scott’s comment in this thread might be relevant: https://uphillathlete.com/forums/topic/50k-to-50-mile-and-how-to-plan-around-zero-mileage-weeks/
– I think the “right” answer is going to be very specific to you. I can tell you what I did last year on a similar weekly volume (w.r.t. hours, TSS, vert and distance) but it’s not clear it would be helpful to you – or that I even did the right thing for me!
I have a question about recovery time after a big objective.
On Saturday a couple of friends and I done a quite big objective for us, it took us 20.5 hours with 34k covered and 28 pitches grade Vs UK 5.8/9 us of climbing and 3k scrambling technical terrain and 3300m elevation gain.
I’m wanting to get back after it and get training again but I don’t want to go into the overtraining hole as I’ve been there before when I was cycling.
Also I didn’t plan on doing this it was a text on the Thursday so I had been doing my usual training and racked up some hours already for the whole week I done
32hours 96km 1331tss
What would you suggest for rest 1 week 10 days?
Any help would be appreciated.
Keep up the good work guys ?
