Training plan for traveler

Coming to end of 12 week all purpose road plan and also heading back to work in March. My airline job usually has me working 3 day trips over weekends. Any suggestions on how to build a plan that meshes with my off days? There are only a handful of hotels we stay in that have legit spin bikes were I could do a sesh w/my power pedals. Also not to excited about using those gyms anyway with covid risk. Thanks

Stay in Hilton with their Five-feet-to-fitness: https://fivefeettofitness.hilton.com

Or, find hotels with Peloton bikes: https://hotelfinder.onepeloton.com

Certainly better than most options.

Thanks, but company picks the hotels

Not very scientific, but I would just beat myself into a pulp for 4 days, rest totally for one, go for a long walk or use the stair stepper etc if you feel comfortable, rest and then repeat.

Yep thanks, thinking the same. To make it more muddy, I don’t really have any events or races to train for. Maybe try to best my PRs on local climbs. That’s about it.

Power pedals on the spin bike are a nice option if available – hopefully you can find off hours when there aren’t others in the gyms if so.

The other suggestion would be to start doing some running as cross-training. It’s a decent way to keep your overall fitness up and then you can shift important interval sessions on the bike around when you can get on the bike.

The big benefit there while traveling is that all you need is a decent pair of shoes. It’s why I took up running in late 2019 – so that I could maintain fitness better while traveling when it wasn’t practical to bring the bike with me.

Running is out except for bear escape ~ broke my hip and fractured pelvis in a cycling accident couple of years ago.
