Love the new forums, calendar and of course the product as a whole.
Background - I am a 41 year old male who was training for my first marathon this coming Sunday (previously completed 2 Half Ironmans over the past 2 years including the World Champs in Chattanooga). Unfortunately a hip/groin (currently getting treated/diagnosed) three weeks ago derailed those plans. Running is a no at the moment but I am able to ride on the trainer. Have mostly managed endurance type ride with the odd 30 sec sprint and a few minutes below sweet spot (last tested FTP of 287)
Given that the bike is somewhat comfortable for me at the moment I am wanting to do a bike focus leading up to Christmas. Planning on doing the Strava Festive 500 (live in Australia so nice weather ). However, my wife and I are going to Japan later this month for 13 days.
So I have the next two and a half weeks in which I can train…a 13 day break (potential access to a hotel bike) and then time after that. What base plan would be appropriate in this circumstance? Thinking SSB Low or Mid for the first 2 and a half weeks…break for 13…then pick up the remainder? Or would Traditional be more appropriate? Look forward to your feedback.
