So firstly… I think I’m nearly recovered from my major injury a couple of years back (shattered hip socket, had to have it bolted back together), and a bad bout of COVID19 about 14 months ago. Just did my target event (~360km mixed surface over two days) and found it much more comfortable than I expected it to be. It’s not been an easy ride, especially not mentally, but I kept getting back on the horse and I think I’m maybe within 15% of where I was at my previous peak fitness… which I’m hoping I can get back over the next year.
With that said, my next two major events are planned for October (B, 200km off road) and November (A, Austin Rattler, Leadville qualifier in Texas). Should I just go with plan builder for those? I don’t really want to do much base training as it’s where I’ve retained basically all of my fitness anyway (I can happily cycle for 12+ hours non stop), but I’ve definitely still down a ton on my higher end power (5 / 20 minute lacking badly).
Any suggestions appreciated.
