As I get older I find I need to ride more. Not just because the house is full of children, but my body seems to respond better to it, and to struggle to get back fully comfortable after days off. As others have said though, a few rides per week certainly qualify as rest days with TSS<50.

There's tons of literature available on how to periodize and structure a training plan. Try the 2-part article published in Velonews about 1.5-2 years ago. Basically, progressive overload is the name of the game. Think of putting blocks together. Could be blocks of volume days followed by a rest day. Blocks of intensity and rest, and use this to put your weeks together.
