multi-day bike tour coming up, but with lots of time packing bike, traveling, touristing, building bike etc. at the start.
E.g. flying tuesday april 12, not riding until saturday/sunday april 16/17.
I was thinking of doing one of the four week building block (perhaps FTP or below) training plans beforehand, but when to set the end day?
Should I have the “recovery” week end on Sunday a whole week before we actually start riding,
Or set it to Sunday around when we start riding, knowing that majority of the recovery rides in the plan will get skipped in favor of sitting on airplanes, walking around all day touristing, etc.?
(trying to cram in one last training block before the trip - just coming off ToS and sleeping in right now. )
