Hey - going on a trip where I will have no access to a bike and am concerned about losing my level of fitness. I have been training this season for 10 weeks or so and have seen great progress in my power, stamina, etc. . .should I even worry about 7 days?
Here is my plan:
Week before the trip train hard every day (lots of intervals, climbs, etc) and try to push my self
Start tapering my diet at the end of the hard week
While away, stretch daily and run every other day for 30 mins (I hate running)
Reduce caloric intake
When I return
Ease back in by doing 2 moderate 2 hour rides with a few sprints and then back to my plan
Thoughts/suggestions? I am worrying about nothing?
