During the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic and the need to “socially isolate” we have seen a huge shift to indoor training globally and people actually finding renewed purpose to their training and even racing on indoor platforms such as Zwift. This has been very positive and motivational for us at TTT and anyone wanting to get involved follow us on Instagram and Social media to get daily updates of events and races we as a whole team are doing and we encourage as many as possible to get involved
What we thought people need some help with is not over cooking it as “ego” has a tendency to take over on the easier workouts and keeping up with the others in the group. We all have different backgrounds, strengths, schedules, work/life balance so we encourage people to stick to their numbers and their coaches advice to see good progression without burn out or a sudden spike in performance followed by a long plateau
Here is a chart that might help a lot of you select events well and put your threshold to the right use..
Caveats to the chart include thinking about how fresh or fatigued you are and Endurance rides can be 2 to 5 hours so adjust accordingly, also races could be very short or over an hour so if on a border line number for a category consider this also. True recovery could be even lower than the numbers shown
