Proper RTB training began for me this year once I'd got my move out of the way. Although I was living 15km out of town in Hobart (when I'd bought the Hobart place, my mum was worried I was "moving halfway to Launceston"), prep for the move to Melbourne and winter weather were cutting training days to about 2 a week. Once I hit August in Melbourne, I was pulling 4 commutes a week on the bike and living 15km from work, just like in Hobart.
Doing irregular shifts, I sometimes get short weeks alternating with long weeks, and this week is the first week I'll pull 6 days in a row on the commute. Despite the tired legs status post on my personal page, I'm on track for a weekly total of 200km, plus a social ride planned for Saturday night.
This week's schedule:
Sunday - In and back via Nepean Hwy - 15km + 15km = 30km (achieved)
Monday - In via Nepean, back via the Bay - 15km + 19km = 34km (achieved)
Tuesday - In and back via Nepean Hwy - 15km + 15km = 30km (achieved)
Tuesday - Test ride of new road bike back wheel - 20km (achieved)
Wednesday - In and back via Nepean Hwy - 15km + 15km = 30km (inward achieved at time of writing)
Thursday - In and back via Nepean Hwy - 15km + 15km = 30km
Friday - In and back via Nepean Hwy - 15km + 15km = 30km
Saturday - light social ride by moonlight, probably 20km
Grand total planned - 234km
I think I'll keep this work rate up for another week and a bit, then taper off and carbo load.
