I have a job that requires me to travel up to 17 days per month, in stretches of 3-6 days at a time. When I’m home, however, I’m completely home: no desk work, nothing to do but train and catch up on honey-dos. My schedule changes month-to-month, so I can’t build a three-month plan that accounts, in advance, for dates and lengths of trips.
To adapt to this, I shift Sufferfest bike workouts off of my “trip days.” This loads me up on the days I’m home. When I’m on the road, I do the yoga (nearly every day), run, and lift in hotel gyms using an app called Fitbod (I really like Fitbod. It builds workouts based on muscle fatigue and the equipment I tell it exists in a given gym.).
For the collective, and especially the coaches, is this the right approach? Should I, instead, simply ignore the on-bike workouts scheduled for my travel days (instead of moving them) and accept that I’ll always complete roughly half of a given plan?
Goals: on KoS training plan now. Cycling partly for general health and fitness, but mostly because I simply enjoy riding bikes. I will probably never enter a race; I ride a Long Haul Trucker with panniers and I’m not aware of any races that would encourage me to dismount and snap photos when something catches my eye.
