I've got a race this coming Sunday and the one after. I am just running base class and I've made pretty steady progress in our off-season in getting faster via regimented workouts as well as longer low intensity rides and periodic group rides.
All that is beside the point though. For this Sunday's race I would like suggestions on what you guys would do in my situation, my situation being that I am currently traveling and have not been on a bike since Saturday and can't be again until Friday. So far this week I've done a bit of mobility and bodyweight work on Sunday, a 4 mile hike lasting about an hour with lots of elevation gain to get the legs working on Monday, mobility work and an easy spin on a stationary bike today, and I plan to finish the non-bike week with more bodyweight/mobility and kettlebell work tomorrow and mobility work Thursday.
Friday it's back on the bike but Sunday is the race. My question is what is the best approach just a couple of days before a race. A good old trail ride, a moderate road ride, intervals, anything else? Or does it matter?
