More is better?

Hey everyone,

In my workout for the day, under the Pre-Activity Comments it says “more is better so ride longer in zone 2 if you can and have time AS LONG as it doesn’t affect your recovery and POWER OUTPUT for the workouts downstream”. Is this suggesting that I can ride in Zone 2 prior to completing todays workout? I’m used to riding for more than an hour a day and would be psyched to put in a hour of zone 2 before doing the 1 hour sweet spot workout.

-Cheers

That is correct. We have those notes placed in our plans to allow for those that do have some extra time to get in some extra Z2/foundation time. Again make sure that doesn’t effect your ability to recovery down the line through the plan. So more time training = more time devoted to recovery.

Thank you! I have nothing but time these days!

One more quick question. Should I add the Zone 2 riding into the workout plan for the day on Training Peaks or should I just ride for an hour in Zone 2 and then start the planned workout when I’m ready to hit it?

Totally up to you on that one, whatever is easiest for you.
