Hi team. I’m 2/3rds of the way through my metric century plan, but have had to take a couple of weeks off the bike due to an IT Band injury flare up. I’ve used the time off wisely, doing daily hip/glute strengthening exercises and plenty of soft tissue mobilisation.
Given the length of time off the bike and the fact I do not want to re-aggravate the injury, I’ve decided to not finish my MC plan as it would be too much intensity post-injury (AVDP is one of the next workouts which I’m certain would not be a good idea! )
My plan therefore is to have 2-3 weeks riding around three or four hours a week at low intensity (Z2), before adding in any harder interval work. Does this sound like a reasonable plan? Any advice/insight would be much appreciated! Thanks.
