Hi @JayKay, Yep, that “extra volume” bit can be a real pain, mentally and physically. As @jmckenzieKOS mentioned, if you are doing these rides inside you can reduce the “extra volume” at the end of the ride, (by about half) as indoor you do tend to do be a bit more efficient. (Accounting for the lack of time coasting, stopping, etc.) However, I wouldn’t just skip it. At least not frequently. If an outdoor finish is an option, go for it. Just keep the effort within target. And yes, you can pick it up later as a second workout. Most folks don’t have that flexibility in time but if you do it is an option. Again, keep the intensity within range.
Hope this helps. Keep up the good work.
I forgot about the ‘outdoors’ option. Yes, if it is available, ride. We’ve had an extended period of Winter Monsoon weather and riding outside would introduce a level of Misery that you don’t want to experience, nor should (we are speaking of downpours with temperatures below 10C).
