Multiple Workouts In One Day

Follow

Sometimes you will have more than one ride listed on a single day in your training plan. These days will typically occur on a weekend when you (in theory) have more time to train. 

Am I supposed to do both rides?

Yes, the goal of the plan is that you will do both of the scheduled rides. This is one of the ways in which we help you build endurance and become a stronger cyclist!

Should I take a break between the rides?

Unless otherwise noted, the rides should be done back-to-back. A short nature break or a break to fill water bottles is fine but in order to build endurance, you need to do the rides with as short of a break as possible. So, it's not in your best interest to do one in the morning and one in the evening.

What does "reduced intensity" mean?

Some of the rides may have a note that tells you to reduce the intensity to a certain percentage. This is very important! Trying to do some workouts back-to-back at 100% intensity will be tough, so be sure to reduce the intensity as instructed so that you get the right training stimulus. More information on how to adjust the intensity of a ride can be found in this article: Intensity Adjustment

  • Quick question- on those days when you have multiple workouts, is there a specific order they need to be done in? On a few of my schedule rides the "coach notes" state to perform Extra Shot after Hell Hath, but other notes just state workouts are at a reduced rate.

  • Regarding the order, it would be great if info on order and timing be added as coach notes where applicable. As an example, today I have the "Improving focus" and a bike session on my calendar. Knowing before starting the video that it's advised to do the bike session directl;y after the mental training video would have helped me plan my day better.

    For yoga sessions I would also like to know if it's best done pre-ride, post-ride or perhaps crack-of-dawn. Somehow I feel this is relevant for some sessions.
