Late October I started the 10 week weight lifting block (after my two weeks off the bike) and subsequently hurt my calf/knee (non cycling related) a couple of weeks in. The last month has been a crap show to say the least trying to get healthy again. Last week I did get a nice 9 hr week of riding pain free doing nothing but endurance paced rides so I feel I am ready to roll again.
I was hoping to start the 18 week SS plan on 1/5 but not sure what benefits if any I will really get out of the weight lifting plan over a very short 4 weeks. The question is should I bag the weightlifting plan all together and just focus on a more polarized approach for December to get base miles in and then jump into the SS plan mentioned above?
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! #injuriessuck
