I'm looking to see how people here get back into a schedule from time off. I took 3 months off the bike and went for my first brief ride yesterday. Starting next week, I get 4 weeks paid paternity leave (new rule, my company is very generous).
I don't expect to do a bunch of intensity right away. The races I plan on doing this summer will be all Crits. Is it too ambitious to jump into a 10 hour week right away? Would you ease into it?
These rides will be generally unstructured, at least in the beginning. Do you think there's a difference between riding every day for 1 to 2 hours, instead of 4 days a week, 2-3 hours a day?
