Tri Cajuns Coaches Corner – “Bread and Butter Sessions”
From Coach Josh Louviere with All In Racing:
Some of you are familiar with these types of workouts…
“I like to call them ‘bread-and-butter’ sessions,” he says. “They are usually short in duration and low-intensity, but are still a very important part of the overall training program.”
I read somewhere recently, professionals recover at around (or under) 50% of their FTP on the bike. That is less impact than walking. Kind of puts it in to perspective. The “hour easy” workouts serve a major purpose if you take the time to monitor your form, and do the little things necessary to get faster.
