    7 day business trip. How to keep fitness.

    Hey there,

    am already deep in the 2014 training although I do travel quite a lot for business but I was always able to have only 2 days off max per week and things were going as planned. Average TSS/week is around 800 these days.

    However next week I will be away for full 7 days on a trip and bringing a bike is out of question so I will have to go to the Gym.

    What would be the best workout schedule to retain my current fitness and TSS. I doubt I can run enough to reach 800TSS. How are you guys doing it?

    Thanks

    If possible, have that be a recovery week so you don't need to hit 800. Then hope they have exercise bikes. It's hard to get in fitness through running if you're not already accustomed to running. Do you run currently? Nail your core workouts that week too.

    I travel with work a lot as well. I agree with trying to schedule it as a recovery week. I look at fast sharp interval sessions like 15x1s or 5x5s which get you off the spin bike as quick as possible

    Mark Verstegen has a book for core performance for cyclist that can easily be done on the road and in a hotel room. I have done that on a business trip.

    With these trips I often "overreach" the week before and use the trip for recovery. I still hit the gym in the hotel but only for easy workouts. If I'm gone of an entire week im often overseas. With all the time lag related problems I'd rather avoid high intensity workouts (and I'm not an indoor training guy anyway)
