Getting a bit confused as to which way to go to achieve my goals for next year. My aim is to do a series of long distance rides, the longest most likely in mid June. I’ve had a read through a few posts and there doesn’t seem to be a general consensus on which way to proceed.
The main ride would be a 600km ride split over a 42 hour time limit with most likely a 400km a week or two before that, so I’m thinking TL will be an important factor, having read a few posts it seems athlete type should be along the lines of Climber or GC Specialist (although most of my long distance rides come in at Sprint Time Triallist for their focus), so the question I have is should I set a TED and then switch to Continuous after that? Or would it be better to maybe do a Continuous block first and then use TED once I get to around 120 days from my ride? Or is there another way that an confused soul like myself hasn’t thought of?
I’ve deliberately dropped my TL for the last couple of months as I’ve been doing work in the gym, but I would like to start training properly back on the bike next week or the week after, so any advice on how best to set myself up would be very much appreciated.
