I’ve just started an all round cycling plan after 10 weeks off due to a pretty bad crash. I did the week FF prep then test OK and have moved into a Medium Hours All Round Plan.
It’s quite an increase in hours from 2 or 3 a week to 8-10 and It’s pretty hot here in Australia at the moment but I want to try to make sure I complete the sessions with as much positive effect as possible.
In the first real session (Chores), I found I had to have a few more minutes of recovery between the sets, as I was overheating and feeling a bit fried.
It did allow me to complete all the sets (3) at the prescribed effort but I wanted to make sure this extended rest in between (which is a L1) would be OK.
Is there any general rule in these types of workouts, the ones with blocks of Vo2 / FTP with very low power recovery in between, like Chores, Attacker, The Bat etc.
