Dealing with a Gap in the Training Plan
I have an interesting training issue to deal with. I plan on riding my first century on Oct. 11. As luck would have it the timeframe from Sept. 25 to roughly Oct. 3 is going to allow pretty much No Riding of any kind (bike, trainer, nothing). Just one of those things. I'm trying to decide how to deal with this. My choices as I see them are:
1) Just look for a later Century somewhere. But the choices in the southeast (NC, SC, Tn, Va. Ga) get pretty limited after mid-Oct.
2) Just deal with it. Load up some serious work the days before the 'forced rest', hit it heavy again Oct. 4 through 7, mostly rest and ride Oct. 11
3) Just 'follow the plan' with a hole in it.
Thoughts on this - thanks.
