Y’all put out recommended CTL guidelines base on a racers age, which I’m assuming is set up for one day events. How does that change for multi-day events such as a 3 day HR, or 7 day HR? The recent HR in Asheville I had an upper 300 tss day one, then a lower 300s tss day two, then 80 on day 3 (TT). I felt good enough during the event, but the week after I’ve been pretty cooked…so I’m guessing my CTL needed to be quite a bit higher to deal with the higher than normal tss load. ( I’m almost 47, and had a CTL in the mid 80s going into the event, which is lower than I wanted, but travel got in the way of training).
Any rule of thumb for future 700 tss weekends?
Frank :(good meeting you!) how long did your recovery take?
