Due to non-cycling life demands (annoying…) I cannot commit to even the novice level plan. It’s too many days in a week. But I can incorporate the strength plans with two to three bike sessions a week. But I need some guidance beyond what has been previously posted on the blog NO PLAN? NO PROBLEM in the Suff website. It’s a very good article and i used that last fall to build some cycling around the intermediate strength plan after our youngest minion was born. It worked great and I credit it with increases strength this spring.
I having been doing yoga quite regularly since the beginning of Covid (which has been great) and now want to get back to the strength plan for the indoor training season.
I know to focus on NM sessions the day off (if time allows) and maybe a tempo or threshold session the day after.
My question is about the day or two before a strength session, does it matter what I do? Can I do a MAP or hard FTP session?
Mentally, I need a hard session every once in a while. Really pushing myself and barely making the targets really lifts my spirits, so in these times I would hate to miss out on those type of sessions while doing the strength plan.
Sorry for the long post.
