Realise I could be asking a ‘piece of string’ question here but anyway:
I have several calamities going on at work, which will squeeze me a bit time wise but more worryingly, will increase my stress levels quite a bit. This will be going on until end of March at earliest. I’m lucky to have a decent gym at work but juggling meetings to carve out time to get it may become harder.
A possible entry to CCC (unlikely), an Endure 24 in June and targeting a sub 4 marathon, there probably won’t be much, if any tri on the horizon again. I did toy with the idea of trying for Swissman but decided against it. I do want to do a couple of mtb XC events though.
With that in mind and needing time for S&C sessions, what do you reckon the minimum amount of riding a week you’d need to ‘stay in touch’ with your previous strength? Not talking about maintaining FTP, just enough to not start from again from deep in the hole.
I’m probably squeezing in ~2.5hrs at the moment.
