I am 55 years old and have started using Training Peaks a couple of months ago for the first time.
Have plotted an average TSS of around 650 per week as this fits in with my age profile, then a 4 week cycle for training. My CTL according to the planner peaks at around 92.
My weekly rides usually consists of three workouts on Zwift and then I have time for a couple of weekend long rides. From reading up I understand that this combination is good, especially as my weekend rides are usually one at tempo or sweetspot and the other at a high pace but short of tempo.
However my issue is that when I do two long weekend rides my TSS shoots up and therefore I guess my CTL will also follow up.
Is this sustainable or should I just reduce the time I spend on weekend rides?
Usually longer weekend rides carry a TSS of 320 each whilst the workouts are average 70 TSS
