Increasing training intensity/volume before two weeks of no exericse
Ok, so averaging about 9-10hours a week cycling, around 160-180 miles and 8000-10000ft elevation for a week.
I am taking this week as a recovery week and aiming for only 80 miles this week of cycling because I am looking to hit my last week, next week, HARD because I will be off for two weeks. Starting Saturday of this week to Friday of next, I want to really pick it up. Looking to hit >220mi, 14-15hrs, and 15000ft of elevation for 6 days. On Friday, I plan to do my longest ride yet of 75 miles.
Is this a bad idea? My legs feel tired now, so I am taking this week easy and recovery atleast a little for next week. then it is TWO full weeks of rest.
Good idea to get injured or to recover for 14 days to become really fit and stronger?
