I wouldnt take a week off. IMO this isnt long term fatigue…to be brutally honest, you’re just kibd of sabotaging yourself.
I just finished short ppwer build 1. The workouts are no joke. I dont do any of them on consecutive days. Heck even with a rest day, i try to avoid doing an evening workout on wed, followed by a fri morning workout.
Seriously…I’m doing short power build for the second time now. Its going much better. 48 hrs between workouts. Eating exquisitely, carbs before workout, carbs during, no drinking (ok maybe one ) night before, full nights sleep.
The Short power workouts are a bitch as it is. Dont add additional obstacles if you can avoid it.
I’d rearranged some scheduling to accomodate the plan. I have TR workouts wed, fri, sun. I also have a club ride tuesday. I used to do my tuesday night club ride, then just SUFFER through my wed workout. It was brutal, and I was failing workouts on that day.
So I started doing my wed TR workout tuesday morning, then doing my club ride later in the day. It was a big day, but the work that got me faster (imo) was the TR workout. It didnt really matter if I was 100% for the club ride. Its not a blazing fast ride…I’m not going to get dropped (no drop ride anyway), and if I was really cooked I could just skip all the sprints. And then I had two days off in a row until friday.
