In Podcast 172: How to Plan a Year of Training and Racing with Pete, they talk about how they plan to maintain a certain TSS for a specific time and if they are feeling good, they may increase it by 20-50. I understand not all TSS is equal and to be careful when increasing it, of which I have no intention at the moment, but may in the future.
My question: how do you add this TSS depending on what phase you are in?
- Choosing (+) variants of the prescribed workout?
- Extending workout time with some zone 2/3?
- Elevate the intensity?
- Add another interval?
- Ride an additional day if you have time?
And which days do you suggest to change it up?
