I intend retiring within the next few months and I am looking at how I expect my training to change.
The key thing for me is that it will not mean training Mon-Fri after work, often when it is cold in my garage and I am normally tired and almost always chasing time.
I do like training and I expect to see my volume go up. May be from the current 6-8 hours a week to 10+. That will mostly be achieved by going out with a group on Fridays for maybe 2-3 hours when normally I miss out on Friday training.
I will be conscious of not changing too quickly and getting my body used to any extra load. My easy days will likely involve light recovery work at Z1-Z2 as I do like training and I figure if I am going to have a shower anyway I might as well get sweaty, I have tried that line with my wife but it doesn’t get me anywhere.
I am sure that many others on here have retired and have probably had a similar plan and I wondered how it worked out in reality.
PS I never seem to be able to create an optional tag. The + sign tells me search or create but I never can actually create a tag. I suspect it might be my Chrome browser that is the problem.
