Thanks for any advice

You can throw up all the excuses (& poor training habits as you want) but you are only hurting yourself.
Try it and since you are self coaching see how it goes. Alternatiively cross country meet is over at dark, right - so there always ‘owl watts’ - aka get on the trainer at 9-10pm.
Riding on Monday creates all sorts of problems mainly bc the way the training plan is design based on your fatigue is that you’ll need a rest day by Monday after the weekend.
so basically, stop being a wuss and suck it up! i’ll make it work and ftfp
Yes, rule # 5 or hire a coach to creatively work with you on a solution. Not to upsell but that’s what we do for a living.
