TrainerRoad thinks I’m Right!

TrainerRoad thinks I’m Right!

I tweeted my question from my last blog post to TrainerRoad. Namely, can I swap in a long ride on the weekend in the Sustained Power Build plan? Not surprisingly (because they’re awesome) they replied to my tweet today. Turns out YES! So that’s what I’m going to do.

Hard Decisions…

This is a 2.5 hour endurance/tempo session with an IF of .69. So I still managed to hit 95 minutes, which is still decent. I guess. I mean its not nothing. When selecting today’s workout, it being Saturday naturally means a longer ride. I think I’d have been better suited for something…
